Warm Baguette Sandwich with Pesto, Mozzarella, Tomato and Avocado

Warm avocado is a hotly debated topic. Some people find it repulsive. Recently, I read an opinion piece on how disgusting and unacceptable it is to ever serve an avocado warm. Well, you know something? Those people are wrong. Dead wrong. There’s no denying that a warm pesto, mozzarella, and tomato sandwich is great. It’s a standard favorite. But if you add a warm avocado to the mix, it’s straight up heavenly. Sorry, haters. Warm avocado is here to stay.


2 demi baguettes

2 Tbsp. pesto (recipe below)

2 roma tomatoes, sliced

1 avocado, sliced

½ c. shredded mozzarella

Salt and pepper


1 bunch of basil, about 3 cups

2 cloves of garlic

½ c. pine nuts

½ c. Parmesan cheese

⅔ c. olive oil

Salt and pepper

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. 

To make the pesto, combine all ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. 

Cut the baguettes in half lengthwise. Spread pesto evenly onto one side of the baguette and sprinkle mozzarella evenly along the other side. Place the tomato slices on top of the mozzarella and the avocado slices on top of the tomato. Season with salt and pepper. 

Carefully place the pesto side on top of each baguette. Roll the sandwiches tightly in foil. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
