Avocado & Goat Cheese Mini Grilled Cheese

I turned 31 yesterday (eeek). It was a good birthday. I went to work (love my job) came home had dinner with my husband, took a bubble bath, got a nice back massage and went to bed early.

That might sound lame but this year, much like Valentines Day, it’s hard to think about anything other than this little guy in my belly who is kicking up a storm and busting up my ribs. Nothing compares to the excitement of meeting my son in a few months so I didn’t care much about my birthday … I just care about his. 🙂

Nick did get me this awesome Martha Stewart cast iron pot (6 quarts) in Tiffany blue. I can’t stop staring at it.

Anyway, I made this grilled cheese with stuff we had around the house this past weekend. We needed a good lunch before we headed out to run errands and I had no idea what to make.

With half a loaf of French bread, some goat cheese, mozzarella, avocado and honey, I got my husband to say “Wow baby, this is really good”

Mission accomplished. 

I just set up a little assembly line, got them going on the grill pan and voilà!

The sweetness of the honey with the savory of the cheese and creamy avocado … mmm mmm mmm. These might be really good at my baby shower. What do you think?

Avocado & Goat Cheese Mini Grilled Cheese (makes about 1 dozen)
1 loaf french bread (baguette)
4 oz. goat cheese (about half a tablespoon for each mini)
1 cup shredded mozzarella
1 avocado

1. Slice your baguette so you have an even amount. For example 24 slices, 12 tops and 12 bottoms. Butter the top and bottom half  (side that will face the grill pan) lightly.

2. Form an assembly line of mini baguette slices. Top one half with goat cheese, a couple small slices of avocado a small sprinkle of mozzarella cheese and then a dollop of honey.

3. Place the other half of your mini baguette slice on top and toast each side for just one minute on a grill pan on medium heat.

Serve warm right away. Enjoy!
