Bacon, cheese and avocado melts recipe

Bacon cheese and avocado melts made at home are a great snack or lazy night dinner. These take around 15 minutes and feed two hungry people.



  • 1 Turkish bread loaf, split lengthways
  • 10 slices shortcut bacon
  • 2 avocadoes, peeled and sliced
  • 2 cups shredded cheese 


Preheat the grill. Line a tray with baking paper.

In a frying pan, cook the bacon on both sides until cooked to your liking. Layer on one side of the bread

Layer avocado slices on top of the bacon. Top with shredded cheese

Place on the tray and under the grill until the cheese is melted and golden.

Alternately you can place these in the conventional oven at 180°C for 10 minutes.


  • Wrap the other half of the Turkish bread in cling film and use it for toast and jam the next morning.
  • I always put the bacon straight from the pan onto the bread so the bacon fat flavours the bread.
  • I used Pizza cheese on these. It is a combination of mozzarella and tasty cheese.
