About this Recipe

This savoury grilled cheese sandwich is surprisingly filling. The buttery avocado is great for sautéing the cremini mushrooms with which it combines to make a wonderful earthy flavour.


2 tbsp butter
0.5 ripe avocado, mashed
2 cups crimini mushrooms, sliced
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 tsp fresh thyme, chopped
1 small yellow onion, julienned
.5 cup low-sodium broth
salt or Mrs. Dash and black pepper to taste
1 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
0.75 cup white cheddar or cheddar, shaved
2 slices Dempster's Whole Grains 100% Whole Wheat Bread, one slice buttered on one side


PREHEAT a non-stick pan over medium-high heat

MELT 2 tbsp butter in pan and combine with mashed avocado

SAUTÉ onion until tender, golden and caramelizing

ADD garlic and thyme, sautéing about 2 minutes

ADD mushrooms, sautéing until they have just browned. Set aside mushroom mix.

DEGLAZE the pan with broth. Simmer until nearly all the liquid has evaporated--about 2 tbsp left.

ADD the mushroom mix back into the pan. Season with salt, pepper, and parsley.

SAUTÉ for 2 more minutes. Set aside. Turn the heat down low.

PLACE the unbuttered slice of bread onto the pan, which should still be buttery. If not, melt 1 tbsp of butter under the bread. Layer the bread with .5 cup of cheddar, then mushroom mix, spread the remaining .25 cup of cheddar over the mushroom mix, and finally top with other slice of bread, buttered side up.

TURN the heat up to medium-high heat.

GRILL until each side is crunchy golden and the cheese has melted.
