I’m really picky when it comes to picking breads. Super picky, actually.

I’m one of those people in the grocery shops that stands in the bread aisle for 20 minutes, perusing through every single brand. It’s an important decision, you guys.

And you know it’s an even more important decision when you’re making grilled cheese. That’s half the battle!

Actually, the bread is really about 67.7% of the battle. You can have the best filling ever but if your bread is mediocre, it’s game over. As eureka!® Bread reminds us, don’t be bland!

Now I used eureka!® Seeds the Day® Organic Bread, and it was the best decision I’ve made all week. No joke.

The bread itself has just a hint of that beautiful rich sweetness without any high fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors, colors or preservatives. It’s certified vegan and made with sustainable packaging.

Win, win and win.

The filling on the other hand – well, it’ll just pretty much blow your mind when you sift through the ingredient list – spinach, avocado, goat cheese, garlic and um, mozzarella cheese.

Told you. Mind. Blown.

20 minutes10 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups baby spinach
  • 4 ounces crumbled goat cheese
  • 2 avocados, halved, seeded and peeled
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 8 slices eureka! ® Seeds the Day ® Organic Bread

Directions:

  1. Combine spinach, goat cheese, avocados and garlic in the bowl of a food processor; season with salt and pepper, to taste. With the motor running, add olive oil in a slow stream until emulsified. Stir in mozzarella.
  2. With a butter knife, spread butter on one side of each slice of bread. Place 4 slices, buttered side down, on work surface. Divide avocado mixture evenly on all slices. Top with remaining slices, buttered side up.
  3. Heat a large skillet over low heat. Add sandwiches and cover; cook, turning once with a spatula, until golden brown and the cheese has just melted, about 2-3 minutes per side.
  4. Slice and serve immediately.

  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    Very delicious! I didn’t have bread or goat cheese available, so I subbed tortillas and gouda cheese. Thanks for the recipe!

  2. The baby spinach used are those blanched? If not, can we blanch them and then use in the sandwich 

  3. I can’t find the nutritional information. I have searched 4 times. Can you point me to it?  By the way! Hands down amazing, we loved it and it will become a household favourite! Thanks!

  4. This looks very fresh and tasty. I’ve invited guests for dinner tonight and I’m going to surprise them with this recipe. Wish me luck!

  5. You have a non dairy recommendation? Fingers crossed; I really like avocados.

    • Unfortunately, without further recipe testing, I cannot answer with certainty. As always, please use your best judgment regarding substitutions and modifications.

  6. This sounds amazing! I really want to make this next week for breakfast but only I will eat it as my husband is weird and doesn’t like avocados 🙂 Any idea if I could make this filling and save it to make a sandwich each morning without it going bad?

  7. Your recipe is amazing & is a lovely way to sneak in leafy greens!

    Caveat: I hate to be one of those people who say they loved your recipe, but then changed it….however, I’m on a diet so I did have to make some adjustments. I used the lower calorie/higher fiber bread I had on hand (though Eureka sounds lovely & now I want to try it). I also reduced all of the other ingredients except for the spinach & garlic. My end result was not as indulgent, but at only 365 calories & 26g fat, it was more diet-friendly & still tasted delicious.

  8. I didn’t realize this sandwich with over 900mg salt can still be considered healthy. The fat content can probably be lowered by cutting down the butter and the grilled cheese sandwich would still be delicious!

  9. A healthy approach to my favorite grilled cheese sandwich? Don’t mind if I do. With my restricted diet, I haven’t been eating things that are even remotely delicious. 

  10. My whole family was excited about this recipe and while making it we were still super pleased with the smells and ingredients but when we sat down to eat, we found that sandwiches too heavy.  The creamy avocado and two cheeses just made it too much for us. It made a lot more than 4 sandwiches… 6 really over sized ones for us!  Thanks for the creativity.  We’ll keep trying!

  11. This grilled cheese was probably the best I’ve ever had!
    I also adapted the filling (arugula, feta cheese, a squeeze of lemon and some yogurt) and used it as a dressing for a pasta salad. So delicious!! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  12. This sounds amazing can’t wait to try it, but I’m concerned about the nutritional information provided.  
    954.4 calories…..67.8g of fat……and 25g of saturated fat???  What is this for? Is it for the entire recipe, or just one sandwich? I’m hoping its for all four, because if not this sandwich is a heart attack waiting to happen!!
    Thanks for all of your great recipes!!!

    • Lee, the nutritional information is for each serving.

      • Wouldn’t each serving be ONE sandwich? It says “Servings per Container: 4”, then “Amount per Serving” for the facts. Seems to be calculated wrong… I hope!

        • Yes, each serving is one sandwich. Servings per container for the entire recipe is 4. I don’t think one person could (or should!) eat 4 sandwiches in one sitting!

  13. goat cheese AND mozzarella! Amazing. Can’t wait to make this at home.

  14. I love the idea !!! I would even imagine it for a brunch 🙂

    Thanks a lot for sharing

  15. Ahhh! This was so delicious. Yummy grown up grilled cheese. I didn’t have Eureka bread (going on the hunt!) but i did have a loaf a ciabatta. Worked great and added the perfect crunch but wouldn’t recommend if you don’t have a panini press. 

  16. This looks very fresh and tasty. I’ve invited guests for dinner tonight and I’m going to surprise them with this recipe. Wish me luck!

  17. I love to spend a long time choosing my bread, too. I will be looking for Eureka Seeds Of Change bread at my local store. This looks good. you can’t go wrong with avocado and cheese.

  18. Grilled cheese and avocado! YUM! Two of my favorite things to eat. I’ll definitely try this.

  19. Can you use any type of goat cheese? I have left over cotija from some yummy corn I made. Your Mexican corn on the cob actually 😉

  20. When does the mozzarella get used? It’s not listed in the steps..

  21. I tried this for lunch today and it was fantastic!! My son even tried it and liked it. I just wanted enough for one sandwich so I made a quarter recipe and it worked out great. I never would have thought of this combination. Thanks!!!. I think it makes a great dip for tortilla chips too.

    • Yay! A dip version – you’re a genius.

      • Not genius, haha, there was extra filling oozing out of my sandwich so I scooped it onto a chip so I wouldn’t loose a bite of the goodness. Then, there was a little left over in the bowl so we finishd it off, even cold, with chips and it was great.

  22. I love the idea!! Have to make it! And Eureka bread is #1 🙂

  23. Oh my goodness!!! You done did it again!!! 
    Your recipes are so innovative. And I agree. The bread you choose can make or break the recipe.
    Thank you for another great recipe. 

  24. What can I sub for goat cheese?

  25. I have been using Eureka bread exclusively for almost 2 years.  Fell upon it by accident in my local Publix.  There was just this one loaf sitting all alone by itself way in the back of the shelf.   Have tried all the different varieties.  Grainiac has become my all time favorite….!  It is firm enuf….moist enuf….”seedy” enuf….sweet enuf….all packed into only 80 calories per slice.  Now to try your avocado/cheese filling……

  26. Sounds great 🙂 shouldn’t the ingredient list have 8 slices of bread?

  27. I really like that you used the word peruse correctly. Thanks!
