Fresh, quality and sustainable products and ingredients are in our DNA. 

Good Eggs is one of our partners with a shared interested in freshness - "absurdly fresh" groceries as a matter of fact. 

If you haven't heard about Good Eggs before, they are a grocery delivery service with a marketplace stocked full of everything you could ever need or want from bread baked this morning to wine from Napa Valley to household cleaning products. 

Fun Fact from Jack: "We started working with Good Eggs back when they first opened and we are one of their OG farms. Back in the day, we used to drive up weekly to the Bay Area and hand deliver a few cases of avocados out of our Ranch pick-up truck. Now, we ship 2-3 pallets of fruit, avocados and cheese weekly!"

Naturally, we were stoked to partner with them and showcase our Moonstone cows milk cheese and farmstead avocados in this amazing Green Goddess Grilled Cheese Sandwich meal kit recipe

For $29.99 (3 servings) you can buy this grilled cheese meal kit on the Good Eggs website. The meal kit includes all the fresh ingredients you need, plus our cheese and avocados, to enjoy an ooey, gooey sandwich without having to visit the store.

We also are sharing the recipe here if you want to try and recreate it at home.

 About Moonstone

Moonstone is a pasteurized, natural rind, hard cow’s milk cheese. Made from a 50/50 blend of Jersey and Holstein milk from a local dairy, it has a rich, buttery and creamy flavor with a bit of zip at the end. Moonstone has a naturally pale yellow paste and a rind developed with our natural cave flora. The flavor is reminiscent of stone, burnt caramel and coffee grounds. Available Year Round

Makes 3 servings | 25 minutes active time | 25 minutes total time

Contains: milk, tree nuts, wheat.


Step 1

Peel, pit, and slice the avocado. Slice 6 pieces of bread, reserving the rest for another use. Grate the cheese. 


Step 2 

To build the sandwiches, lay the bread slices on a cutting board and spread with pesto. Layer half of the shredded cheese on top of 3 slices of bread. Top with a small handful of spinach, reserving the rest for another use, along with a few avocado slices. Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle the rest of the cheese over the top and firmly press the halves together. 


Step 3 

In a large cast-iron skillet or frying pan over medium-low heat, melt 2 tablespoons butter. Working in batches if necessary, add the sandwiches and cook until the bread is golden and the cheese begins to melt, 5 to 7 minutes. Spread some more butter on the top of each sandwich before flipping and cooking on the second side, 3 to 4 minutes longer. 


Step 4 

Transfer the sandwiches to the board, cut into halves, and serve gooey and warm.
