Not Your Usual Grilled Cheese No. 6: Everything But the Kitchen Sink
Along with those ingredients I pulled out eggs, fresh tomatoes, Tzatziki sauce, bacon, lime and salt and pepper. I almost added sweet red pepper but restrained myself. And as I almost always do, I set out a teaspoon of ground Flax Seed.
While the bacon was cooking I prepped my avocado by peeling and slicing it, then squeezing 1/4 of a lime over it, followed by a liberal salting. That's one of two things I love salt on - avocado and fresh tomato!
Setting the avocado aside, I sliced my tomato. Then I scooped out about 1/2 a cup of Tzatziki sauce and tossed in a teaspoon of Flax Seed. Mix that up and set it aside.

My next job was to slice the cheddar cheese and get out the slices of meat. I rarely eat processed meats but there's one brand I don't mind. It has zero Trans Fat so once or twice a year I treat myself to their thin-sliced turkey. I don't eat ham but hubs loves it so he got Honey Ham.
I hesitated over that avocado - leave it sliced and place on the sandwich or mash it up and mix it with the Tzatziki. Either would be fine but this time I left it in slices.
A bit of margarine or butter on one side of each of 4 pieces of thick white bread, then butter side down into a fry pan or griddle. But don't turn it on yet! Next spread the Tzatziki - Flax Seed mix on the unbuttered side. Start layering: whatever order you want, but I did the meat, avocado and tomato. I still hadn't started grilling the bread as I wanted to wait until the bacon was ready.

Then it's just a matter of watching the grilled cheese so the bread doesn't burn, but the insides are warmed up and the cheese is melted and gooey.
This was seriously so tasty! Hubs suggested we buy a food truck and call it "Say Cheese" then take it around so I can make Grilled Cheese sandwiches! That won't be happening.....
