Bacon Wrapped Grilled Cheese
This is a super easy and delicious treat for old and young alike! You can get creative with the types of cheeses you use for this sandwich! Just make sure you select cheeses with the correct PH balance so they melt properly! INGREDIENTS: -1 lb of bacon (thin cut better than thick , in my opinion) -Cheese - I used Gouda, Gruyere and Manchego -A hardy bread that will hold up in the frying process. I used a multi-grain artesan loaf DIRECTIONS: -Grate your cheese and set aside -Lay your bacon strips on a cutting board, overlap slightly -Lay one slice of bread on top of the bacon -Evenly spread your cheese on the bread slice -Put the top piece of bread to complete sandwich -Wrap/pull the bacon around the bread. -Start another layer of bacon (for the other side) -Flip sandwich over and completely wrap sandwich -Place in a hot pan. Depending on thickness of bacon cook for 3-7 minutes per side. Don't forget the sides! -When done - cut in half and enjoy!
