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.
Part II of our Paris trip (Part I HERE) ….I apologize for the overload of pictures in advance! One of the highlights of Paris was our trip to the Palace of Versailles. I cannot begin to tell you how amazing this place was and how enamored we were with it (having an antiques business does…
If I could name one staple from our refrigerator, I would say it’s yogurt. We love yogurt and we use it in foods and recipes all the time. In fact, we end up skipping breakfast a lot if we don’t have it on hand. Today I’ve decided to share 4 delicious ways to use yogurt…
I’m usually not a big fan of cookies. I tend to gravitate towards cakes and pies much more than I do cookies. However, this recipe is not only delicious (and I generally avoid desserts with jelly) but it is super easy and quick to make. This automatically makes these thumbprint cookies one of the Top…
This post was created in partnership with Blurb. I always feel like it’s a shame to travel, spending time taking lots of photos and then never doing anything with said photos. I used to store my photos in albums; I’d take my USB drive to Target, print out what I wanted and then frame my…

I’ve gotten asked countless times about the editing tools and apps I use for my photos. There are hundreds out there and most of them are not free so it gets annoying to try them out without spending quite a bit of time and money in the process (sometimes you download an app and spend…
