Guacamole Sandwich

Preparation Time : 5 mins | Cooking Time : 5 mins | Serves : 1

Recipe Category: Breakfast


Bread – 4 slices

Guacamole – 2 tbsp



  •  Spread the guacamole on one slice and place other slice over it


  • Place it in a greased waffle/ sandwich maker and cook for 2 minutes or as per the sandwich maker’s instructions


 My Notes:

  • Alternate method suggested by my friend – peel and remove avocado seed and cut into big pieces and mash them. Squeeze few drops of lemon and add salt. Spread them over the bread and add veggies of your choice, cheese, salt and pepper. Keep the other bread over it and toast
  • Can also grill them directly in a skillet
  • I used cooking spray, instead you can use butter to grease
  • Can add cheese after spreading guacamole
  • I made the sandwich in a waffle maker, as I like the waffle-shaped bread slices!

Bread Upma

IMG_5108 Bread Upma is my all time favorite dish. I still remember my childhood days, whenever Amma buys a loaf of bread, she prepares bread butter jam, bread sandwich and bread upma. Amma’s Bread upma is simple and tastes yummy. To give a crispy texture to the bread I have baked the bread and added Checkout my other recipes using bread

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degree F, and place the bread in oven. Bake on both sides (around 7 minutes each and turning the bread in between) or until bread becomes crispy.  Turn off the oven and let the bread stays in the oven


  • In a pan heat oil and when the oil becomes hot, add curry leaves and onion, saute till onion becomes translucent,  then add tomato and cook
  • Once onion and tomato are cooked, add turmeric powder, cumin powder, coriander powder, salt, sambar powder and garam masala and cook for 2-3 minutes


  • Take the bread from the oven;cut into pieces


  • Add the bread pieces to the masala, gently mix until the masala coats well.  Serve hot to enjoy the crispy bread upma

IMG_5106 My Notes:

  • Baking bread is optional. You can even toast/ grill the bread
  • Baked Bread upma tastes great if served immediately
  • You can use plain bread and make upma  avoiding baking
  • Ginger garlic paste can be added
  • Usually i temper the upma with mustard seeds and channa dal,  missed doing that, while taking the picture
  • You can bake the bread and keep it in the turned off oven for 45 minutes – 1 hour and  quickly saute the bread with the masala before serving. By doing this way Bread upma will be crsipy instead of soggy texture
