Grilled Cheese Bacon and Creamy Avocado Sandwich with sun-dried tomatoes was a burst of flavors.
Can we all agree that grilled cheese sandwiches are the best? I could genuinely live on them and be a happy camper forever. However, this one got an upgrade, which we all love, don’t we?!
My family was split in half, deciding if they liked this or not only because they were not digging the sun-dried tomatoes. I was stunned, but in a way, it is understandable. We cannot please everyone’s taste buds. On the other hand, an intense sweet-tart flavor of sun-dried tomatoes require an acquired taste, so you can leave them out if you are not a fan.
I will assure you that this sandwich is just as good without it. Furthermore, I honestly loved the bits of the sweetness that came from sun-dried tomatoes against the savory taste of bacon and slightly citrusy creamy avocado.
I am so excited to tell you that I have teamed up once again with America’s oldest family-owned creamery, Minerva Dairy, to show you all super simple and tasty recipe using their incredible butter.
Just in case you already did not know, Minerva Dairy’s delightful butter is 85% butterfat, high-quality made from pasture-raised cow milk.
My family and I absolutely love this butter, so I am personally always excited to partner with such a fantastic company and a brand that I am using all the time.
I hope you all try this recipe because if you love bacon and grilled cheese, this one is a keeper for sure. With colder weather just around the corner, this sandwich makes an excellent lunch with a bowl of hot soup.

- Make bacon on the skillet, oven, or use air fryer if available to cook it until crispy or to your preference. Place it on a piece of paper towel and set aside.
- Butter each slice of bread with softened Minerva Dairy Butter. I used unsalted, but herb garlic butter or sea-salt could
be used as well.
- Spread on one side of the toast creamy avocado, add a bit of finely chopped sun-dried tomatoes, which is optional, then add cheese and bacon. Top with more cheese and place the second slice of toast on the top.
- Heat your buttered skillet or a griddle and place a sandwich on top to toast. It is not necessary, but you may use a cast iron
grill press if you have one. It gives you the most fantastic grill marks.
- Cook for a few minutes on each side or until it is golden brown. You may take it off the heat, and cover for a minute so the
cheese could completely melt. Slice and enjoy it!

- If you do not eat pork bacon use turkey bacon.
- If you are vegetarian, you may make it without
the bacon and perhaps use mushrooms. It is very delicious without it.

— Using Kingsford Hardwood Pellets
This post is sponsored by Kingsford. The opinion and text are mine.
Cooking a whole family meal on the grill is not only a time-saver but also a very delicious way to prepare food. On top of that, you can create fabulous memories with your loved ones. I am all about creating memories, particularly around food.
Well, in this post, I am sharing a tasty sandwich with you, a side dish that could be served as a summer salad as well, and a comforting dessert that just about anyone would admire.
I think that the best part of summertime is cooking food outdoor on your grill. Who agrees with me? There is no mistake that the food tastes so much more enjoyable when it comes directly from your grill to the plate.
I partnered with Kingsford Hardwood Pellets to share with you all these appetizing grilled recipes.
Kingsford Hardwood Pellets are made with all-natural, pure flavor hardwoods and absolutely no fillers, binders or preservatives, bringing out undoubtedly the best possible flavor.
You must try their pellets because it will fire up the flavor in any pellet grill — Classic, Cherrywood, Hickory, Signature, and Maple flavor. Furthermore, Kingsford Hardwood Pellets are proudly made in the USA.
For my weekend family meal, I used Kingsford Cherrywood — all-natural 100% cherry hardwood. Additionally, as I said, there are no fillers, so cherry’s fruity aroma adds a delicate smoke flavor to any protein or vegetable, and pairs perfectly with pork.
These all-natural Kingsford pellets are made with pure flavor hardwood to deliver a sweetly refined smoke you will absolutely love. Regardless, you can most certainly use Classic, Hickory, or Signature Pellets, but I wanted to stick to Cherrywood for this meal!
How to use Kingsford Hardwood Pellets:
Pour wood pellets into a storage container, also known as a hopper. The pellets are then fed into a cooking chamber by the electricity-powered auger. Then the wood pellets ignite, heating the cooking chamber where the air is brought in by fans, and your food gets infused with a real wood smoky flavor.

Just like any baked goods, these Basil Pesto and Cheese Rolls are pillowy and comforting at every bite. These are soft, tasty and super easy to make.
I do not bake as often as before. Perhaps because I cannot stop eating.
Well, to be honest, any type of bread or rolls is just a pure temptation to me. I would take it over any type of cake.
I still do it for other people and for my family too, but like I said just not as often.
These rolls are so delicious. They literally melt in your mouth but my trick is to let them do their thing; rise dough overnight in the fridge and allow them to double in size when before baking.
I mean, yes, you can make them as soon as dough doubles in size, sure. However, that fermentation process is just so neccecery when it comes to having successful rolls.
That has been my personal experience for the last 20 years, so I just want you guys to just experiment and come to your own conclusion.
In order to learn you definitely need to fail at least once, and I failed so many times until my bread, rolls, pizza dough, etc. came out great.
Anyhow, these rolls never last too long in my house especially when all of them are at home during breaks or over the weekend.
I hope your family likes them as much as we do. They are really simple as you can see.
You do not need much to make them, and even if you do not have a stand-up mixer you can knead the dough with your hands. I have made everything using my hands for 19 years.
This is the first year that I am using a stand-up mixer, but that is only because my husband decided to surprise me, otherwise, I would still use my hands. Trust me on that one!

An easy and tasty recipe for Basil Pesto and Cheese Rolls
- 1 cup of warm water (240ml), a splash more if needed
- 1 envelope active dry yeast (1/4 oz/21g)
- 2 teaspoons sugar (8g)
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil (13.3g)+ for greasing bowl
- 4 cups all-purpose flour (480g)
- 3 teaspoons salt (17g)
- 6 oz Basil Pesto
- 2-3 oz Cheese, (I used swiss cheese)
- 1-2 tablespoons butter, melted
- Measure water then adds to dry yeast and sugar. Mix it. When you are using active dry yeast or yeast for pizza you do not have to activate it, but I like to dissolve it in the cup of water anyway.
- Measure the flour and add salt then mix it together. Place all the dry ingredients in the work bowl of your stand mixer.
- Pour water with yeast and sugar in the flour.
- Add the bowl on the mixer and attach the dough hook and turn the mixer to do the job of kneading.
- Mix until the dough just comes together, forming a ball and pulling away from the sides of the bowl. Increase the mixer speed to medium and knead for about 5 minutes.
- Transfer dough to well oiled larger bowl and cover. Place dough either in the oven or microwave so it could rise. If your oven has a proof setting this is a perfect time to use it, if not just keep it in the turned-off oven. Allow it to rise for the first time for about 45 to 60 minutes. You can make rolls after this point, but I do step 7. and 8. most of the time.
- It will double in size. Knead, cover and place in the fridge for about 6-8 hrs/overnight before making rolls.
- You do not have to chill the dough, however, they do come out so much better, plus it is easier to roll out. After chilling let it sit at the room temperature for about 15 minutes before rolling out.
- Dust your working surface with a bit of flour. Roll out dough to (0.635cm) 1/4 inch thick. The size is approximately (38cm) 15 inches wide and (53cm) 21 inches long.
- Spread basil pesto from one end to the other, but leave maybe 1/2 inch from the edge so it is easier to roll. Then shred some swiss cheese all over the pesto. You can add more or less and any cheese that you prefer. I will leave this to you.
- Slowly roll the dough until you reach the end. Pull ends to have an even end. Slice it in half, then cut the cylinder into 12 to 14 equal slices.
- Place cut side up and evenly spaced 9 x 13-inch baking dish.
- Cover pan with plastic wrap or a large cotton kitchen towel and set aside in a warm place to let rise for at least 30 minutes to one hour. They need to double in size.
- Preheat oven to 350°F and bake them for 30 to 35 minutes. This also depends on your oven, and baking dish.
- If you are baking in the ceramic dish like I did, then bake at a lower temperature, I would do the same if you choose to bake it in cast iron, however, for a regular metal baking dish I would go to 375F and bake for about 25 minutes or until they are nicely golden brown.
- As soon as you pull these rolls out brush them with some butter. I used unsalted butter.
You may use sun-dried tomato pesto or any other filling with this dough.
