Bacon and cheddar grilled cheese recipe

If there is one thing we probably all have in common is a great love for grilled cheese. No matter how you slice it this toasted sandwich oozing with your favorite cheese is one of the most treasured comfort foods of all times. It ties with my other favorite fall comfort food: Pumpkin Pie. That’s another story…

Whether you are vegan, dairy loving, gluten free, low carb, high fat or a low fat person I bet you have a favorite grilled cheese in your recipe box. You should also pack one in your lunch box. Just sayin’

 

Bacon and cheddar grilled cheese recipe

I recently shot these photos of grilled cheese for a client. Tempting huh! I like the pool of cheese. And of course the bacon.

You can use gluten free or whole wheat based breads. Regular or turkey bacon and low fat or regular cheese. The choice is yours. Isn’t it amazing how simple something so amazing can be!

Grilled mozzarella with cherry tomatoes, herbs and olive bread

For my low carb lifestyle I always go open-faced. I also love veggies in mine. My kids and hubs on the other hand love 2 pieces of bread. Spreads are good too. All is good.

Very, very good.

We often pack grilled cheese in our lunch boxes. They offer a nice balance of healthy fat, protein and whole grain carbs. Besides they taste amazing and my kids will be sure to come home with an empty lunch boxes!

Apple pie grilled cheese and egg battered sandwich

Above we have a combination of sweet apples, toasted nuts and sharp cheddar are heavenly in my Apple Pie Grilled Cheese, how about an egg battered version for extra protein?

Here’s a French toasty Strawberry Mozzarella combo? Sweet meets savory.

Pumpkin Ricotta is charming too…..especially with a powdered sugar bat stenciled on top.

No matter how you slice it I bet you have a favorite to share. A grilled sandwich that you can’t wait to get home to after a long day at work or play.

Special Note: Steve Jobs

As I sit here surrounded by Apple technology (iPod, MacBook Air, gigantic MacBook Pro, iPhone, etc) I can’t help but reflect.

Time stood still when I heard the news (via Twiitter) about Steve Jobs passing this week. We lost an amazingly creative mind. A man that contributed more to our society than most ever will. He touched our world and all of our lives with a magical genius. My children will grow up reaping the benefits of his creations and understanding this wonderful mans gifts. Blessings to the family he leaves behind. I hope he finds great peace and continues to share from above. He will always be remembered.

Favorite sandwich – not going to lie, I think fluffernutters still win! Ha. But if we’re talking cheese, I love paninis!

Reply

33 Marla October 8, 2011 at 4:55 am

Liz, my mom’s all time favorite sandwich is a fluffernutter. She had them throughout her whole pregnancy with me. To think I have never had one….hmmmm.
Paninis are an amazing way to enjoy grilled cheese!

34 Joanne October 8, 2011 at 4:52 am

Grilled cheese is definitely one of my go-to comfort foods (and really, as far as comfort foods go…I’d say it’s the lesser of many evils…especially with a nice slice of tomato inside!). And yeah…that pool of cheese is crazy awesome.

Thanks so much for featuring my recipe, love! Made my Saturday. :)

Greg was working late.
An hour or so later I was calling him to stop by the store @ 8:00 and pick up everything for a grilled cheese and tomato soup!
We’re having it again tonight! ;)

I’ve yet to make a “grilled cheese” recipe I found that uses 2 slices of breadcrumb-covered slices of eggplant as the “bread” of grilled cheese…I have a feeling it’ll be pretty darn good, though.

I love anything with melted cheese on it. Ever since I was a kid, I’ve been making open faced sandwiches (first in the oven, later in the toaster oven), with melted cheese being the crowning glory. These days, the go-to is cheese and ham on a toasted English Muffin–again, open-faced.

Your sandwiches look so tasty!

These sandwiches are making me drool. It is such a great and simple thing: grilled cheese on good bread. Amen to that.

I love your variations on the classic grillled cheese sandwich. It’s nice to see each meal served with a glass of water!

I love to mix it up with sandwiches, but I have a soft spot for a jambon-beurre on baguette bought from any shop in northern France. I know it sounds simple, but good French ham, great french Butter on a crisp, fresh baguette is just right. It also reminds me of my childhood.

Wow, that has to be the most delicious, mouthwatering, lovely picture of a grilled cheese sandwich I’ve ever seen! Great post, Marla. My tummy is literally rumbling for this and also my favorite sandwich, a classic grilled chicken with tons of veggies and honey mustard. Mmm!

My kids love grilled cheese and tomato (I make it on whole grain bread ;) and serve it with tomato soup, pure childhood comfort food. Love all the photos of oozing cheese.

My favorite sandwich – warm, toasted sourdough, turkey, green chiles, avocado, and provolone cheese melted on top of everything. MMMM!

Favorite sandwich was the grilled cheese with tomato my husband first made me when we were dating. I thought a grilled cheese sandwich was just grilled cheese, but he proved me wrong :)

I remember when you first posted the apple pie grilled cheese, it looked amazing then and it looks amazing now. If you ever get the chance visit the American Grilled Cheese Kitchen in San Francisco. It’s amazing!

Oh you are tempting me with all those photos! I cannot resist a good grilled cheese sandwich, especially it involves lots of mozzarella and pesto.

My favorite sandwich is a simple panini with prosciutto, sun dried tomatoes, pesto and brie. :) I made this for brunch every once in a while.

Favourite sandwich? Well it’s hard to beat the classic grilled cheese or BLT, but the Monte Cristo sandwich definitely has some oomph to it!
