foodiefridaylogo2Butter + Bread + Cheese = Winner …add in Bacon and you get Grand Prize Winner!

Today we are making double decker grilled cheese sandwiches with bacon.  Yeah you know you want one!  Admit it, you do!!  OK that’s better.  For the cheese I chose the new 4 Cheese Italian Blend from Land o’Lakes that combines American with Asiago, Romano and Parmesan.  I also included a lacy Swiss and a little more American cheese.   For the bacon I used a thick cut bacon that was processed locally and WOWZERS was it good!

This Recipe is enough for 4 sandwiches adjust accordingly.

What You Need:grillescheese5

  • 8 slices of 4 Cheese Italian Blend
  • 8 slices of American Cheese
  • 8 slices of Swiss Cheese
  • 12 slices of good bread – I went with a country white but you could experiment.
  • Butter (softened) or Butter Spread
  • 20 pieces of bacon ( 16 for the sandwiches and 4 to eat while you cook)

What You Do:

  • Fry Bacon and place on paper towel covered plate… hide the bacon from others but enjoy a piece or two for yourself, after all you are the one cooking!
  • Butter one side of each of the pieces of bread
  • Heat skillet or griddle to medium high heat
  • Place one slice of bread, butter side down onto heated cooking surface.
  • Place one slice of American cheese on bread
  • Place two pieces of bacon
  • Place  one slice of Swiss and Italian Cheese On top of Bacon
  • Cover with piece of bread butter side up
  • Once the bread is grilled to a golden brown flip it over and build out the rest of the sandwich – cheese – bacon – cheese – cheese
  • Remove from the pan when the sandwich is golden brown and place on cutting board, cut into triangles – because that’s the way you eat grilled cheese!
  • Enjoy
