My daughter in law recently told me that my son used to bring her avocado and cream cheese sandwiches. I had never heard of such a thing and was instantly intrigued.
Because avocado and cream cheese are both delicious, but rather bland, I decided to use some spices to add some flavor. I used King's Hawaiian Sweet Rolls to make sliders, but any bread would do.
Avocado Cream Cheese Sandwiches
2-4 oz. cream cheese
1 large ripe avocado
1 teaspoon lime juice, to add flavor and prevent browning
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon curry
1/2 teaspoon cumin
6 King's Hawaiian Sweet Rolls, or bread of choice. Toast if desired. I desired.
Stir the cream cheese until softened and smooth. Add the avocado and lime juice and mash them together.
Add the spices you like. Don't overwhelm the flavor. I used cumin and curry. You could also use the flavored cream cheese in the deli case. In this case, you shouldn't add any additional spices or flavoring
Spread a generous portion on the bread of choice. Serve with fruit and iced tea for a light summer meal.
