Grilled Cheese/Avacodo/Onion Samo

JoSele Swopes


This is an Open Face Sandwich that My mother used to make for me, my brother and sister when we were growing up. Then I made it for my children and husband. They always enjoyed it, and we still do. My youngest couldn't pronounce Sandwich so she called it Samo, this is where the word Samo comes from.
