Grilled Bacon and Cheese Sandwich
(for 1 sandwich)
* 6-12 slices of bacon
* 2 slices a bread
* 1 slice of cheese (i used low fat american cheese)
* 1-2 slices of deli meat (i used bologna)
You want to cook up your bacon first. I chose to fry up the bacon into a weave. Six slices of bacon will make one bacon weave. If you want double bacon, then simply make two.
(A co-worker had mention this to me one day and it stuck in my mind. I mean, why not? I feel as if it really held well for the Bacon Explosion, so why not a simple grilled sandwich?)
After your bacon weave has cooked to your choice in crispiness, set it aside to cool. Keep the bacon grease in the pan and bring to a medium heat.
While your bacon grease comes to a simmer, assemble your sandwich. My assembly: Wheat bread slice, bacon weave, cheese slice, 2 bologna slices, second bacon weave, and wheat bread slice.
Check your frying pan. Your bacon grease should be simmering. Add your desired amount of butter to the pan. You pan should be hot enough that the butter begins to melt as soon as you place it in the pan. If it is smokey, remove the pan and let it cool for a bit and turn down your stovetop.
Place your sandwich in flat. Let is cook for about a minute or two (depending on how crispy you want it). Flip it and repeat. You can always add butter and flip again if needed.
To see if your sandwich is throughly heated, pull up on the bread to see if the cheese is melted. If it is, then your sandwich is ready.
Let cool for a minute and enjoy!
