Our Waffle Iron Grilled Tomato & Avocado Sauce Sandwich is a new creation thanks to the heat of the summer! Don’t you just love sandwiches in the summer?
It is always fun to use a waffle iron in the kitchen, isn’t it? I can’t remember the last time I actually made waffles in it though! I’ve been plotting using it for sandwiches for quite some time and summer menu planning provided the perfect chance.
Make The Avocado Lime Sauce
You’ll need my Avocado Lime Sauce recipe for these sandwiches, you can grab that here. It’s only 3 ingredients and a few minutes to make using fresh avocados.
So here is how this sandwich recipe came to be. I had made the Avocado Lime Sauce to use on Shrimp Burritos and had plenty left over. Not one to waste, I decided to create a sandwich recipe I could use it on. It was summer and we had tomatoes so the rest as they say is history.
Slice The Tomatoes
I use a Mandolin to slice the tomatoes really thin and so they will be uniform in size. By using the mandolin I am able to make four sandwiches with one tomato which is perfect.
Slicing mozzarella cheese is fun, isn’t it. Maybe your grocery Deli has some already sliced. That would be nice.
How To Slice A Mozzarella Cheese Ball
There area couple of ways; use a very good serrated knife and hold the cheese ball gently. Use the dental floss method in which case you still have to be gentle with the cheese ball.
Does it annoy you too that the Waffle Iron serves only one purpose and that is to make Waffles which we rarely do. I want to keep my Waffle Iron for those rare occasions but it needs to work harder to earn a space in my cabinet.
Please tell me what you are cooking in your waffle iron besides waffles. I also make Waffle Iron Corn bread in mine, here is that recipe.
One of the great things about these sandwiches is the super foods used to make them, avocado and tomato not to mention how tasty it is!
We have been enjoying sandwiches all summer and even though BLT’s are a favorite, we wanted an Avocado and Tomato sandwich. I think we have created a winner with this one!

We slice our tomatoes and mozzarella thin, if you prefer thicker slices you may need to buy more of each.
A word of warning about making the sandwich then grilling in the waffle iron, expect the avocado sauce to drip onto the iron and need to be scraped off. That is why we prefer to grill the bread first. Mozzarella does not require melting to be enjoyed.
