Tips for the Best Grilled Cheese:

  • Cook Bacon – Cook bacon in a skillet and allow it to rest on a paper towel to remove any grease.
  • Spread Mayonnaise – Spread mayonnaise on the side of the bread that will be on cooked in the skillet. We like to cook the grilled cheese in the reserved bacon grease.
  • Layer Ingredients – Top with bread with cheese and bacon and then top with bread.
  • Cook Sandwich – Cook grilled cheese until both sides are golden brown. Flipping the sandwich one time.
  • Storing – Grilled Cheese sandwich is best served immediately.

Recipe Variations:

  • Butter Spread – You can use butter instead of mayonnaise in this recipe if you prefer. Place the butter side of bread on the skillet.
  • Cheese – These sandwiches are great with any of your favorite type of cheese. Sharp Cheddar Cheese is always a crowd favorite and melts really well. We used cheddar slices and pepper jack cheese to make our grilled cheese sandwiches and it was a huge hit. Monterey Jack is always a great idea.
  • Bacon – Feel free to use any type of bacon. You can also use turkey bacon or already prepared bacon to make this delicious sandwich.
  • Bread – You can easily make this sandwich with your favorite type of bread. We used sourdough bread in this recipe, but Artisan bread is amazing or Texas Toast. We like a thicker bread when cooking on the griddle.
