The only thing I did differently was to use sourdough sandwich bread that is thinner than what the recipe called for. I put the cheese next to the bread on both slices, and I used the same pan (wiped out) that I used for frying the bacon. I'd recommend that if you also use thinner bread like this that your food all be at room temperature so the cheese will melt appropriately!
this was an awesome sandwich. I agree with another reviewer and will sautee the onions next time. My kids were reluctant to try avocado and now love it. I assembled the sandwich and used my counter top grill instead of a skillet.
I loved it! I've had gourmet grilled cheese before, but I'll admit that this one was better. I used two other cheeses (whatever I had available) instead of pepperjack and I found that olive oil worked better than butter. I also did not use onions and regular bacon instead of thick. I will DEFINITELY be making this again.
