Southern Grilled Cheese/#FoodieExtravaganza

     It is Foodie Extravaganza day and grilled cheese is on the menu! Southern Grilled Cheese, that is! I grew up eating grilled cheese sandwiches every Friday for dinner. They were made on white bread with american cheese, and we usually had tomato soup to go along with it. It was okay when I was a child, but my tastes have changed, and for the better!
     I wanted a grilled cheese that was different, but made with ingredients that are loved by pretty much everyone. So, I present to you: Southern Grilled Cheese, made with breaded pork, swiss and manchego cheese, and an avocado and cream cheese spread, served on grilled wheat bread. I think you are going to like it!

While the pork is cooking,
heat up a pan, or two, to grill your bread.
As the bread starts to grill, place swiss on one piece of the bread,
and manchego cheese on the other piece, and let 
the cheese begin to melt.
