Avocado Breakfast Paninis

When I was a child, we did not eat butter. Rather, my cholesterol-conscious parents bought then-trendy I Can’t Believe it’s Not Butter, which my father creatively coined “ICBINB,” as in, “Gab, please pass the ICBINB. How was school?” I hated ICBINB, both because it was disgusting and because, unbeknownst to my well-intentioned parents, I had tasted richer, creamier pastures—and I knew that ICBINB was, frankly, a Country Crock of shit.

You see, our down-the-street neighbor Therese kept real, room-temperature butter in a ceramic dish on her kitchen counter at all times. When her son and I would play after school, she would spread thick layers of sweet, real butter on toasted white bread and serve it to us for a snack, along with glasses of icy Kool-Aid. Therese, it seemed, put butter on everything—and for good reason: it was delicious. And, unlike the white bread and Kool-Aid (which I could have done without), it tasted real.

Today, my parents know better—their days of spreading artificially-flavored whipped vegetable oil on bread are long gone. And this morning, as I slathered these sandwiches with butter (truly the key to making good grilled sandwiches), I thought fondly of Therese and her ceramic butter dish.

  • ingredients
  • unsalted butter at room temperature 1 for a stick
  • 8 thick slices of sourdough bread $1.50 for a loaf
  • 4 slices jack or cheddar cheese $3.50 for 8 oz.
  • 4 eggs $1.50 for 12
  • 1 avocado, sliced $1.50
  • few sprigs of flat-leaf parsley or cilantro $1 for a bunch
  • 1 jalapeño, sliced into rings $0.25
  • 1 Roma tomato, sliced thinly $0.50
  • few thin slices of red onion $0.50 for a whole onion
  • salt and pepper to taste Pantry
Total Cost of Ingredients $11.25


Butter all 8 slices of bread. Place a slice of cheese between two slices of bread with the buttered sides facing out. Repeat with remaining bread and cheese.

Heat a grill pan, frying pan (preferably cast iron) or panini maker over medium-high heat. Grill the sandwiches (if using a grill pan or frying pan, press them with another heavy pan, weighted down with a few cans). While the bread grills, cook the eggs in a little butter in a separate frying pan, to your desired done-ness (scrambled, fried, over-easy, etc).

Cook the sandwiches until bread is golden-brown and crispy on both sides and cheese is melted.

To assemble the panini, open up a sandwich and slide an egg in with the cheese. Top the egg with a few slices of avocado, jalapeño, tomato, onion and salt and pepper to taste. Top with the remaining half of bread. Repeat with remaining sandwiches and serve immediately.

Makes 4 paninis.

Throw away anything that is broken or cannot be fixed, reused, recycled or given away. Get rid of clothes that do not fit, gifts you do not like and will never use, books you do not value and appliances you never use. Donate to charity, give them away to friends, or sell them at a garage sale on on eBay. Always remember the more stuff you have the higher costs to move. Removalists charge by the hour and dollars can rise through the roof in no time. Furniture deliveries
