  • 2 slices bread
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 2 slices cheddar cheese
  • 1 avocado

for the buffalo sauce:

  • 1/4 cup butter melted
  • 1/4 cup Frank's hot sauce
  • 1 tbsp white vinegar
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder


  • Make your grilled cheese: butter both slices of bread on one side. Then, on the opposite side of one piece, add mashed avocado. Place that piece butter-side down in a nonstick skillet. Add the cheese on top of the avocado spread, then the last piece of bread butter side up.
  • Cook sandwich until cheese is melted, approximately 2 minutes per side.
  • For the sauce: whisk all sauce ingredients together until mixture is smooth.
  • Serve grilled cheese with the buffalo sauce and enjoy!


*I recommend using unsalted butter. If you use salted butter, omit the extra salt in the buffalo sauce.
