I am always looking for new lunch recipes so I decided to step up my sandwich game with Pepperidge Farm Farmhouse® Hearty White Bread, my homemade guacamole, and crunchy bacon.
Farmhouse Hearty White Bread is new and now a softer texture. The bread has a fresh from the oven taste. I love that it is thick-sliced and has no high fructose corn syrup. Be sure to check out a coupon here so that you can try it out for yourself!
I refer to this sandwich as grown-up grilled cheese, because this sandwich is much more epic than two slices of bread with cheese. I have an avocado obsession. I have found that avocado pairs nicely with almost anything. It is definitely an instant upgrade for any boring sandwich.
I am in love with guacamole. I really feel like I can pair it with anything. I have fond memories of the first time I was showed how to make guacamole. I learned several years ago during a girls trip. It was late August, so it was super hot outside. The temperatures were in the 100’s. A group of my friends decided we should plan a lake trip to get away for a weekend. We stayed in a lake house that belonged to one of my friend’s parents.
We spent the weekend doing what most girls do on trips. We gossiped, watched romantic comedies, and of course, we ate a lot of great food! Guacamole was a large part of this weekend. I had no idea it was so easy to make! Learning how to properly slice and pit avocados was probably the most challenging part.
By the end of the weekend, I was very comfortable with it all. I switched up the recipe to fit my tastes. I am sure you will love it!
