My kid is the worst. He will be all cute, and then the second I get out a camera, he takes off or jumps around or does whatever it takes to ensure I get the worst possible photos. That is why I have 3987598347 photos of him eating. Other than when I let him watch a movie, mealtime is the only time he sits still. And even then I usually get the goofiest smile. Which, in this case, is perfect…

So in order to ensure I got The Bug’s cheesiest grin, I took some of his favorite foods – corn, avocado and cheese – and mixed it all up in his favorite sandwich, a good old grilled cheese, in this case on Rudi’s Gluten Free Bread. Then I added bacon, for good measure.

The Bug’s Ultimate Bacon, Corn & Avocado Grilled Cheese

All of my little guy's favorite foods packed into his favorite sandwich. This buttery Grilled Cheese is made with crispy bacon, creamy avocado, juicy corn, and two kinds of ooey-gooey cheese!
Prep: 15 minutes
Total: 15 minutes


  • 2 ears of corn cut from the cob, or about 3/4-1 cup corn
  • 1 avocado cut into think slices, and then into about 1/2 inch pieces
  • 1 cup shredded pepper jack cheese or about 4 ounces
  • 1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese or about 2 ounces
  • 4 ounces bacon about 5-6 slices, cooked and crumbled
  • 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 8-12 slices of bread depending on how big the slices are and how many sandwiches you want to make, I used rye and Rudi’s Gluten Free
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil divided


  • In a medium bowl, combine the corn, avocado, bacon, cheeses, and Greek yogurt.
  • Divide the mixture evenly between half of the bread slices, and top with another slice of bread.
  • Spread a thin layer of butter on each of the bread slices (both sides of the sandwich)
  • Heat olive oil in a pan over medium-low heat (if cooking in two or more batches, divide the olive oil accordingly).
  • Cook the sandwiches for about 3-4 minutes per side, or until golden brown and the cheese has melted. Covering the pan with a lid during cooking will help the inside get all warm and gooey before the bread gets too browned.

    That sandwich looks really good. The strawberry brie grilled cheese also sounds amazing. My all-time favorite sandwich is a good ol’ tuna sandwich on sourdough with lettuce and tomato!
