Bacon Avocado Panini Melt

I love paninis because you can make so many different kinds and they’re so easy to make. Excuse my bad cell phone photos … this was kind of spur of the moment & they turned out so good I had to share. (maybe I’ll do them again and update the photos) 

To start of making this panini you will need to make some homemade guacamole first. Don’t worry it’s super easy.


You will need:  2 avocados, 1 plum tomato, 1/2 onion, and some lemon juice or lime juice. To add some extra flavor (you don’t have to) I use 1 tablespoon of mayo, and 1 tablespoon garlic or a sprinkle of garlic salt as well.

Have you ever cut up avocados? Here’s how I cut mine:


First, cut it in half, pull it apart. Slice with a knife into cubes then scoop out with a spoon. Mash it up in a bowl with a fork or an avocado tool until smooth and creamy.

Then add the diced tomatoes, the slice/diced onions, garlic. And salt to taste. Don’t forget to add some lemon/lime juice so the avocado does not turn brown.

Okay, the “hard” (not so hard) part is over. Now just make some bacon like you normally would in a pan, then chop some up into pieces and add that to the guacamole. Mmm it’s so yummy! You can also add slices of bacon to your panini too.

Butter the bread (we use hearty white bread) you want something a little bit firmer so it doesn’t get squashed by the panini press. Next, top the bread with a slice of cheddar cheese, then tomato slices, bacon if you wish, then add your guacamole, and then another piece of cheddar cheese, and lastly bread. 

Cook in panini press for about 4 mins or until cheese is nice and melted.
Enjoy with some chips & dip!
