  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F, and line a baking tray with foil.

  5. Start by lightly buttering the outside of the 2 slices of Udi’s bread with butter.
  6. Next, evenly sprinkle the shredded Mozzarella cheese on the inside of one slice of bread.
  7. Top cheese with 3-4 sweet potato rounds, 4 thin slices of avocado, 2 slices of tomato, and 1/4 cup baby spinach. Spread BBQ sauce on the inside of the second slice of bread, and place on top of the spinach.
  8. Heat a skillet sprayed with non-stick cooking spray over medium-low heat.
  9. Place sandwich in the skillet and cook until desired level of char is achieved and cheese begins to melt.
  10. Using a spatula, carefully flip the sandwich and continue cooking on the other side until done.
