Grilled cheese gets a decadent makeover with creamy, mashed avocado sandwiched between crispy, gluten-free cauliflower bread.

If you have yet to try cauliflower bread, this easy-to-assemble recipe will become your new go-to sandwich. When cauliflower rice gets mixed with a little almond flour and egg, it creates a delicious Paleo bread that can hold up to piles of savory fixings.

Start by combining riced cauliflower and sea salt in a mixing bowl. Stir well and let the mixture sit for 20 minutes to draw moisture out. Use a clean kitchen towel to firmly wring out the cauliflower to make it as dry as possible – otherwise, you’ll wind up with soggy bread. Tip: If you’ve purchased fresh bagged riced cauliflower at the store, it is usually dry enough to skip this step.

Return the cauliflower to the mixing bowl and add the egg, almond flour, and black pepper. Mix thoroughly. The mixture should be slightly moist, but not runny. Scoop the mixture one cup at a time, and place onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Use your hands to form the mixture into four squares, pressing on the tops and sides with your fingertips so the mixture holds together. Bake for 25 minutes, then cool for 5 minutes.

Next, grease a cast iron skillet or pan with ghee over medium heat. While the pan heats, smear a slice of cauliflower bread with mashed avocado, and top with another slice of cauliflower bread. Grill on the hot skillet for 2-3 minutes, then flip and cook 3 minutes on the other side. Repeat with remaining slices of bread. Serve your sandwiches hot!
