So Easy! So Delicious! Tomato Avocado Melt Recipe

My sister-in-law introduced me to this tasty melt while I was visiting for Christmas last year. Part of me still holds a tiny grudge that she didn’t share it with me sooner, because I know it’s a family favorite at her house, and it has quickly become my go-to quick lunch of choice! Seriously, this Tomato Avocado Melt is to die for and I basically eat it every day for lunch!  It takes 2 seconds to throw together and it always satisfies my hungry tummy! And, not only does it have some of my favorite ingredients layered on top, it has a thin layer of mayo and cayenne spread on the bread, which is the secret ingredient!  The mayo/cayenne combo adds just the right touch of tang and bite that makes this melt completely addicting!

I often make this for my one-year-old’s lunch as well, leaving out the cayenne, and he gobbles it up!  If you’re like me and hardly have time to feed yourself come lunch-time, this melt is your solution! A deliciously addicting sandwich in under ten minutes.  I’ve compiled a whole bunch of awesome lunch and snack ideas here, and I refer to them often. But this Tomato Avocado Melt is probably my favorite of all!

  • Place chicken breasts in a baking dish that has been coated with non-stick baking spray.
  • Brush each chicken breast with olive oil.
  • Sprinkle each chicken breast with salt, pepper and Italian seasoning.
