Introduction: Grilled Cheese and Bacon Sandwich

Picture of Grilled Cheese and Bacon Sandwich
Grilled cheese sandwiches are one of my favorite sandwiches; especially during the winter. It was not quite so hot today, so I made tomato soup with grilled cheese sandwiches! I make them different than anyone I know. We love them. 

Step 1: Ingredients

Picture of Ingredients
For one sandwich:

I used 4 slices of Swiss cheese.
2 Slices of sourdough bread.
4-6 thin tomato slices.
1 Lettuce leaf.
Tab of butter.
2-4 slices of cooked bacon.
Italian seasonings to taste.
Parmesan cheese to taste.
Pepper to taste.
Salt if desired.
Miracle Whip or mayonnaise. 

Step 2: Utensils

Step 3: Wash and Slice

Cook the bacon.
While the bacon is cooking . . . .
Wash the tomatoes and lettuce.
Slice the tomatoes.
Lightly spread butter, or Miracle Whip, or Mayonnaise on 2 slices of sourdough bread. I only added a tab of butter to the skillet but it is easier and more uniform to spread it over the bread first. 

Step 4: Toast Bread

Toast one side of each slice of bread in the skillet.
Flip over.
Turn down heat very low.


Step 5: Add Cheese

Add the cheese.

Cook until cheese is melted.
Add lettuce.
Place one slice of the bread over the top of the other slice.
Remove from heat.
Serve on a plate.

I usually serve this with tomato soup! It is very good. Add parsley and a pickle and your family will beg for more! Here is a different way to make canned Tomato soup:

I want more! This was sooooo good! I wanted the pictures to turn out better but for some reason the lighting today was bad. I even took pictures outside. I was sure they turned out so I did not upload them until after we ate. Big mistake! Thanks for commenting! Have fun making these they are worth it!
