- Good quality, crusty bread
- Aged cheddar, sliced
- Bacon - as much as you want!
- 1 ripe tomato, sliced
- Butter for the bread
If you have a sandwich grill, I'd highly recommend using that rather than frying the sandwich in a pan. I find with the grill, the bread comes out golden brown and crispy, but not too greasy. Preheat the grill and butter the outsides of your slices of bread. Fry the bacon and set it aside.
Layer the cheddar on the bread (butter side out - don't make that rookie mistake!) with the bacon and tomato slices. Try not to eat too much of the cheese before it makes it into the sandwich. (We usually get cheddar that has been aged for two years and it is the greatest. Thing. Ever. It's hard not to just eat the cheese and forego the sandwich.)
Grill the sandwich until it is golden brown on the outside and the cheese gets nice and melty, and then devour.
If you have any other delicious grilled cheese variation suggestions for me to try, I'd be happy to hear them. I can't get enough of them!
