About: I am married with two children. Spring, summer, and fall are my very favorite times of the year. I enjoy working in the yard, sewing, cooking, quilting, gardening, and creating. I do this to keep my sanity.
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

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

Skillet or grill
Spatula 
Serving plate
Cutting board
Knife

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.
Bacon.
Tomatoes.
Add seasonings.
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.


 

Step 6: Sunshiine's Final Thoughts

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: https://www.instructables.com/id/Flavor-Up-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!
