Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!

Grilled Cheese Bacon and Avocado Sandwiches

There's probably nothing as homey as a grilled cheese sandwich, right? I've been eating them since I was a kid and I bet you have too. But who says a grilled cheese sandwich has to be only cheese? Let's throw some stuff inside that will get your taste buds rockin' and rollin'. Since we are a bacon lovin' family and also a family that can't get enough avocado (we ARE from California, after all!)...I decided to throw those bits of deliciousness in there to see what would happen. Want to know what happened? Well...I'll tell you...a bunch of crazy yumminess happened, that's what! You guys have got to try these! So good! Would I steer your taste buds wrong? 

Grilled Cheese Bacon 
and Avocado Sandwiches

1 loaf good crusty bread (sourdough, Italian, etc)
Sliced cheese of your choice (I used sharp cheddar)
2 - 3 ripe avocados ~ cut in half then sliced
1 pound bacon ~ cooked to your liking
Lawry's Seasoning Salt
Olive oil

Heat a grill pan or cast iron skillet over medium heat. 

Decide how many sandwiches you're going to make.

Brush one side of each piece of bread with olive oil.

Lay one piece of bread in the pan then layer the other ingredients, starting with the cheese.

I put down two cheese slices, side by side because my bread was large. Then I put down the avocado. Next comes a very important part. Sprinkle the avocado with Lawry's Seaoning Salt. You won't be sorry. Next comes the bacon then two more slices of cheese. The cheese should be next to the bread so it melts and also to act as "the glue" to hold everything together.

Grill until cheese has melted and sandwich is golden brown on both sides.

Slice and serve!
