Grilled Cheese for Layla

grilled cheese-7

 

I was recently visiting with my old friend Layla when she said “I’m loving the food photography but I’d like to see more savory foods. I need some grilled cheese or something!”

Later on that very evening I happened to notice that the lock screen image on her iPhone was a grilled cheese. So I knew what I needed to do.

Start with some quality bread and your favorite kind of cheese (cheddar!) Line one piece of bread with the cheese and the other with mustard or whatever condiment you like.

Add a few slices of really crispy bacon and sliced fresh tomato. Some people are into chewy bacon. I get that. But when you bite the sandwich you want the bacon to break. You DON’T want the whole piece of bacon to come out with the first bite.

lightly butter your bread then place in a frying pan on low heat. Flip it after a few minutes. LOW HEAT!!!! That part is important. You don’t want to burn the bread before the cheese even gets a chance to melt. It takes longer but it will be well worth the wait.

Then…
