Bacon Avocado Grilled Cheese Skewers



There are few things that go together quite like lunch and grilled cheese, but a plain grilled cheese sandwich can get boring after awhile, so why not mix it up a little. We came up with these fun grilled cheese skewers. You get all the fabulous taste of grilled cheese with some extra veggies. I am never going to complain about my kids eating extra veggies without complaining. Something about putting veggies on a stick makes it fun to eat.
You will need:


First cut the crust off of the bread and butter the outside sides of it. Cut the strips of bacon into thirds and fry in a pan until crispy.
Layer creamy of jalapeno Havarti, bacon and avocado on your sandwich. We use Arla Dofino cheese because it is free from hormones and preservatives. So I feel good about giving it to my kids.
Cook your grilled cheese in a pan until golden brown. Flip over and repeat.
Cut each sandwich into four sections. Slide a quarter onto a skewer followed by a cherry tomato and slice of red bell pepper and more avocado if desired. Repeat until your skewer is full.
Stand back and watch your kids gobble up their lunch.

Right now Arla Dofino is hosting a Snack-to-School Facebook sweepstakes until October 15, 2015. One winner will receive a semesters worth of Arla Dofino cheese and a Genuine Thermos lunch kit.
Visit the Arla Dofino Facebook page at  click the Sweepstakes tab, and follow the instructions to complete the provided registration form to receive one entry.

That's just so yummy looking, I've got to try to make this. I don't think I've ever tried this brand of cheese but I'll look for them on my next shopping trip. Thanks for sharing the sweepstakes, I'd love to enter.
