The Best Grilled Cheese Sandwich Ever

I am having a relaxing day off- just puttering around doing the 'put off' jobs like cleaning out the fridge and freezer.

After my puttering I grew hungry... and remembered a glorious, grilled cheese sandwich I once had at my friend Amy's house. A grilled cheese with her homemade bread, bacon and avocado. I had all those components except her homemade bread. Honey wheat from the freezer took it's place.


Fry some nice, thick bacon in a skillet. Pour the grease from the skillet and leave a touch for frying your grilled cheese. Spread bread with a thin layer of mayo, top with cheese and bacon. I used Cheddar and Havarti cheese. Turn your skillet on low. If you fry your sandwich too fast the cheese will not melt. I covered the skillet until the cheese looked melted. Then turn up the heat to get that nice grilled flavor. Remove from skillet and open your sandwich. Lay half of a sliced avocado and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Lay top back on and slice diagonal.

Duke is not allowed in the house and he knows it- technically he is not the whole way in the house. Crazy dog.


Bursting with flavor. This grilled cheese beats all.


Now I must get back to work.
How do you like your grilled cheese sandwich?

Blessings,
Hope

  1. Yum that looks so good! I like to make pizza cheese sandwiches - my latest one had pizza sauce, pepperonis, a mixture of various cheeses, spreadable basil cheese and a little bit of pesto. Yummo!!!

    1. That sounds tasty. I will have to try that sometime. I am just getting into making pesto. It's so versatile.

  3. Wow. Good ol’ fried bacon, cheese and toast bread with additions - can’t go wrong with that! It reminds me of the time I used to actually enjoy weekends back then. I would wake up early in the morning and make some toast, bacon and scrambled eggs with sausage and muffins on the side.

  4. I was a lucky one that got to eat one of these sandwiches, and it was out of this world. Great. Sheila Helmuth

  5. How can you have a dog and not let it in the house? It's a pet right? It's not a work dog...

    1. Well, he is a large dog and we aren't home during the day. He enjoys being outside and we let him in the basement in the winter. He sneaks up to my mother-in-laws and she occasionally lets him in the house. He is a very well loved pet, he was a wedding gift from our groomsmen.
