I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of
Crab & Avo Grilled Cheese
...in your mind.

Crab & Avo Grilled Cheese

Makes 2 - I am most certainly a fan of crab. Whole, in parts or just the meat in a can - I love it all. But if buying in a can, get the pasteurized kind that’s refrigerated - cuz the ’on-the-shelf’ kind blows and pretty much anything you make with it will blow too.


  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 large clove garlic
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped parsley
  • 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • Pinch kosher salt
  • 4 slices sourdough bread
  • softened butter
  • 1/2 pound crab meat
  • 1 avocado, sliced thin
  • 8 slices jack cheese, sliced thin


  1. Put mayo, garlic, parsley, lemon juice and salt in a small bowl - mix well
  2. Top 2 slices of bread with some garlic mayo, then with 2 slices of cheese each, half the crab, half the avocado, remaining cheese and remaining bread
  3. Butter one side of each sandwich and cook butter side down in a heated non-stick plan until golden brown (pushing down slightly with a spatula during cooking)
  4. Butter top, flip over and cook again till golden
  5. Remove, slice and eat :)
