Stepladder Ranch and Creamery’s buttery avocados and farmstead cheeses are beloved marketplace staples. We pack both, along with fresh spinach and punchy pesto, into these verdant grilled cheese sandwiches.
Contains: milk, tree nuts, wheat.
What You Get
Stepladder cow’s milk cheese
Pre-washed baby spinach
What You'll Need
Salt and freshly ground pepper
Peel, pit, and slice the avocado. Slice 6 pieces of bread, reserving the rest for another use. Grate the cheese.
To build the sandwiches, lay the bread slices on a cutting board and spread with pesto. Layer half of the shredded cheese on top of 3 slices of bread. Top with a small handful of spinach, reserving the rest for another use, along with a few avocado slices. Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle the rest of the cheese over the top and firmly press the halves together.
In a large cast-iron skillet or frying pan over medium-low heat, melt 2 tablespoons butter. Working in batches if necessary, add the sandwiches and cook until the bread is golden and the cheese begins to melt, 5 to 7 minutes. Spread some more butter on the top of each sandwich before flipping and cooking on the second side, 3 to 4 minutes longer.
Transfer the sandwiches to the board, cut into halves, and serve gooey and warm.
