Grilled cheese is one of those dishes that we just don’t make often enough. I think all the butter scares me a bit but once I get past it all and resign myself to the fact that grilled cheese will never be healthy, I enjoy it to the nth degree… Of butter.
I think bacon and cheese make the best duo ever and always will. This grilled cheese is an adult version of the typical classic – I’m pretty sure I would have tried to pick out the oats and seeds in the bread had you tried serving this to me when I was a kid and I’m sure I would have complained about the dijon addition.
Sadly, I never had a refined palate growing up.
I happen to think the seed-filled oat bread is key in this recipe. I used my local grocery store’s bakery version and recommend fresh-baked bread but if you prefer packaged bread, that would work. Use as much or as little cheese as you want and be generous with the mustard sauce!
BACON CHEDDAR GRILLED CHEESE WITH SWEET MUSTARD
Yield: 4 sandwiches
4 slices bacon
1/4 c mozzarella, shredded or sliced
3/4 c cheddar, shredded or sliced
8 slices oat whole wheat bread
2 tsp dijon mustard
3 T BBQ sauce
2 T mayonnaise
Butter one side of each bread slice. Mix mustard, bbq and mayo in a small bowl. Spread 1 T of mayo-mustard mixture on the non-buttered sides of 4 bread slices. Top with bacon and cheese and remaining bread slices, making sure buttered sides are facing up.
Melt 1 T butter in a skillet on medium heat. Add buttered sandwiches and press down on sandwiches. Once cheese begins to melt, flip sandwiches over and press down again.*
*A cast iron skillet is perfect for pressing sandwiches down.
I’m on the lookout for some suede. You’d think that with all the options out there, I wouldn’t have trouble finding something but as with all trends, I tend to have a difficult time making a decision as to what I want. I’m so excited that this jacket has smoothly transitioned from last spring. I love…
It’s funny how you don’t realize you’re wearing something often until you see it in photo form. These sneakers are the epitome of casual spring style and I seem to be pairing them with every outfit lately. They’re super comfortable and they go with quite literally everything. K-Swiss is a great brand but Adidas also…
Vertical stripes are just as awesome as horizontal stripes IMO. My mom got this top for me two birthdays ago while we were outlet shopping at Calvin Klein and I thought it was the sweetest thing. We don’t usually do gifts in our family so the unexpected ones are always so meaningful. Pairing the top with a…
Myrtle Beach has finally arrived. We leave tomorrow morning, bright and early. What I’m looking forward to most? The food. Myrtle Beach seems to have an endless supply of beach restaurants and small shops. (Thanks for all your input!) What I’m dreading? The drive. All 9 hours of it. So wish me luck and have…
If you love pecan pie but wish there was more crust to go with the filling, then these tea time pecan tassies will be your thing. I can’t tell you how much the hubs and I love these. Unfortunately, these are a bit difficult to make healthier, mainly because flaky crusts require butter and the…

Obviously, some of the above may not…
