It is for this reason, I feel, that I am not a big fan of grilled cheese sandwiches. However, now as a father of two small boys, I find myself making them. We often have a variation of grilled cheeses (Mexican grilled cheese - the quesadilla, the Italian grilled cheese - pizza, or the American grilled cheese).
Evidently April was / is grilled cheese month. Here's a number of recipes that one can make to enjoy the melted cheesy breaded goodness, of which I have picked my favorite to share for Recipe Monday.
Barbecue Bacon Grilled Cheese Sandwich
from Veronica's Cornucopia
- 2 slices Texas toast
- 2-3 T barbecue sauce
- 2 oz sliced sharp or smoked cheddar cheese
- 4-6 slices cooked bacon
- 1 oz shredded Monterey Jack cheese
- Butter or margarine
Makes one sandwich.
Veronica's Notes: Your sandwich will require several minutes less cooking time if you use regular bread. Also, the Monterey Jack isn't necessary but I like to glue the bacon, cheese and bread all together by putting cheese on both sides. Change it up as you desire!
