Easy! You already know how to use a griddle to make a grilled cheese sandwich, so just add some fun between the layers of cheese!

I used great a great dill infused cheese, sharp cheddar, asparagus that was quickly prebaked in olive oil and s&p, and avocado mashed with cayenne pepper and s&p. I used olive oil to lightly coat the bread, assembled, then put it on the hot griddle for a few minutes, flipped it, cooked it a few more minutes. Then, I plated it, took a photo, and ate it! It was super yummy!! You’ll try it? 😃
