  • In a small bowl, mash avocado well. Stir in lemon juice, garlic powder, red pepper, salt and pepper. Adjust seasoning to desired taste.
  • Spread butter or ghee on each slice of bread.
  • Heat a skillet to medium and place two of the pieces of bread, butter side down.
  • Layer two slices of cheese, spread half of the avocado mixture on top of that and then put half of the arugula on that. Add other slice of bread on top.
  • Cook until bread becomes golden brown (3-4 minutes) and then flip.
