Avocado and Cheese Stuffed Buns

Sharing is caring!

Wanna see my buns?

You know you do.

Mmmm hmmm.

Avocado and Cheese Stuffed Buns

Y’all always have your minds in the gutter, geez.

These little beauties were inspired by my good friend, Joanna, who made a grilled cheese with avocado and swore it was so good I would want to go slap my mom. Like, literally slap her in the face. That good.

Ok, fine, so she didn’t say that. But that’s what she meant, I’m sure of it. I know her, damnit.

I have to admit, I still have not made that grilled cheese. BUT, today I came close. I had some of my leftover pizza dough from last night AND an avocado (this seems to happen quite often) that was going to go bad soon. So, I got a bright idea. I’m going to make that avocado grilled cheese a stuffed bun!!

I did a test run this morning to see if my pizza dough was the right consistency – it worked. So, I made several and I was trying to get pictures, but I couldn’t stop “testing” them. Good thing I made several. Imagine how happy I was when I got to break these bad boys open.

And obviously, yes, Joanna was right. Avocado and melted cheese on bread is luscious.

Sinful, people.

Avocado and Cheese Stuffed Buns


  • 1/2 batch pizza crust (keep the rest in fridge until ready to use)
  • 1 ripe avocado, diced
  • 1 1/2 cups Muenster cheese, shredded
  • 1 1/2 cups Cheddar cheese, shredded
  • Olive oil
  • Italian seasoning
  • Garlic powder
  • Sea salt


  • Preheat oven to 500 degrees.
  • Using about a fist full of dough, gently stretch it out as flat as you can. Place a few chunks of avocado in the center, then a tbsp of each cheese. Fold all sides upwards and pinch together to seal. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with Italian seasoning, garlic powder and salt.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until slightly brown. If you like crispy bread, leave it in a few minutes longer!

So, now I’m thinking of all kinds of combinations for these…chicken, meatballs, veggies. How awesome would a Reuben Bun be??

That would be the shiznit.

Oh, Dear Lord. That last statement would so embarrass my kids.

Don’t lie.

    Ok, I’ll admit it. I DO WANT your buns. But the cheesy avocado ones, you know, because cannibalism is frowned upon.
