Brush both sides of 4 slices of fresh Italian bread with melted butter. Top 2 of the bread slices with slices of cheese, avocado, and tomato. Cover with remaining 2 slices of bread. Place sandwiches on a grill or nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, set a heavy pan on top, and cook about 2 minutes per side, or until cheese has melted.
