In our family we make these grilled cheese and bacon sandwiches when we have been too busy or are too exhausted to cook a meal. We don’t have them often but whenever someone says, “How about grilled cheese and bacon?”, an enthusiastic “YES!” is always guaranteed. They are a delicious alternative to standard grilled cheese sandwiches and are as quick and easy to make.

Preparation time: 2 minutes

2. Put the bread slices onto the cookie sheet. You will make as many as people want. E.g. 2 each.

3. Slice the cheddar thinly.

4. Cover each bread slice with a layer of cheese. Note: Processed cheese slices do not taste nearly as good.

5. Cut the bacon strips into 1” pieces.

6. Add the bacon to the top of the cheese in a single overlapping layer. I use about one slice of bacon per slice of bread.

7. Broil until bacon is crisp and cheese is melted, approximately 5 minutes. Watch them closely because there is just a minute between done and charred.

8. Serve immediately.
