If you’re going to make a grilled cheese sandwich, make it right! And by ”make it right”, I mean put some effort into it. Get creative, buy good bread and cheese. You can really go wild with this sandwich, maybe throw some apple slices and walnuts with brie in between that bread. Spinach and goat cheese go well together also. The ideas are endless! Today we put together a great grilled cheese with some fun ingredients that you can make at home. Here’s what you need!
- 2 Thick Slices White Bread
- 2 Slices Sharp Cheddar
- 1 Slice Brie
- 1 Slice Havarti
- 1/2 Avocado
- 3 Slices Thick Cut Bacon
Start off by cooking your bacon. I like to get bacon pretty crispy for a grilled cheese, mostly for the texture that it adds to the gooey cheese. Now, carefully butter the outside of your of bread. Slice up the avocado, get your cheese ready, and you can start to build your sandwich! I like to put 1/2 the cheese down on the bread, then put down the avocado and bacon down, and cover that with the rest of the cheese. This way the cheese melts and incorporates all the ingredients evenly. Warm up your cast iron pan to medium-high heat and get that grilled cheese cooking! You do not need to add any butter or oil to the pan now that your bread is buttered. After the first side of your sandwich has a nice toasted look, flip it over and turn the heat down to medium and let that cheese melt. It should only take about 3 minutes on each side. Now you can remove it from the pan, cut it in half, and dig in!!
A nice way to start the morning. Sarah Jaffe couldn’t be more amazing.

In bed listening to tUnE-yArDs while my amazing boyfriend makes me saturday morning breakfast before a long day. Things might get me down in life sometimes but it’s these moments that remind me how good I have it.
I defiantly can’t say I’m an electronic expert…actually I’m pretty naive to all of it. But this song is awesome, and I could listen to it about 5 times in a row(I know this from experience).
