Grilled Cheese with Bacon


Sometimes nothing is more comforting than a simple grilled cheese sandwich. Whether you had a hard day, it's raining outside, or you just aren't sure what to make for dinner. Grilled cheese pretty much cures all. Andrew recently decided to make grilled cheeses for dinner while I tied up some loose ends with the blog and schoolwork. After he finished toasting up these beauties, I just had to snap a few photos and share it with you all here. See, even the simplest of recipes, with only 2- or 3 ingredients, can be just as delicious as something that takes hours. It's all in the quality of your ingredients!


Grilled Cheese with Bacon

Ingredients:

  • 4 slices bread of your choice
  • 3/4 cup freshly shredded smoked mozzarella
  • 3/4 cup freshly shredded smoked gouda
  • 3 slices applewood-smoked thick-cut bacon, cooked and chopped
  • 2 tbsp. butter
In a large skillet, heat 1 tbsp. butter over medium heat. Place the first slice of bread down and top with 1/2 of the mozzarella, sprinkle with half of the chopped bacon, half of the gouda, and then the top piece of bread. Press down firmly with the back of a spatula. After the first side has turned golden brown, or closer to burnt if you are like me, flip it over to the second side and continue to cook until all of the cheese has melted and the bread is toasted, about 5-6 minutes in total. 

Repeat with the remaining bread, cheese, and bacon. Serve immediately.
