BACON GRILLED CHEESE

Happy National Grilled Cheese Day! There’s nothing better than a hot and buttery grilled cheese sandwich. They’re one of my go-to meals for when I don’t really feel like cooking! Everyone in the family loves them. So just how exactly do you improve upon a classic? Simple- you add BACON. I love this simple method that not only tastes great, but is easy to eat. Have you ever had a grilled cheese with bacon and you take your first bite…and out comes ALL the bacon? That drives me crazy! This method solves that problem. Easy, delicious and you’ll never want to go back to the traditional sandwich!

Easy Bacon Grilled Cheese ~ crispy chopped bacon with 2 kinds of cheese on grilled sour dough! Bacon Grilled Cheese

yields 2 sandwiches

  • 8 slices cheese (I like to mix provolone, mild cheddar, Muenster, etc.)
  • 4 wide slices of bread (I love sourdough)
  • 5 strips of bacon
  • butter, for spreading
  1. Preheat griddle to about 375 degrees. Spread butter on one side of each slice of bread.
  2. Cut bacon into small pieces ranging from the size of a dime to the size of a quarter. Cook on the griddle 5-7 minutes, until brown and starting to crisp. Remove from pan and place on a paper towel. Quickly rinse some of the bacon grease out of the griddle and return to heat.
  3. Place 2 pieces of bread butter side down on the griddle. Lay 2 pieces of cheese on top. Divide the bacon crumbles in half and place on the cheese. Add 2 more slices of cheese, then other slice of bread, butter side up. Cook for 3-4 minutes, until lightly golden. Flip and cook on the opposite side until golden.
  4. Remove from heat, slice in half and enjoy!
