Author Notes: I used to get this sandwich at a little diner close to my office, when I'd be in a hurry for lunch. It was American cheese, thin supermarket bacon, and Wonder bread, and it was still good. When you upgrade all the ingredients, it's phenomenal. And when you pair it with a cup of homemade tomato soup, it's sublime.Kayb

Serves 1

  • 3 strips slab bacon, fried crisp and drained
  • 2 ounces Gruyere, shredded
  • 2 ounces butterkase cheese, shredded
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 slices sourdough bread
  1. Butter both sides of both pieces of bread. Distribute one kind of cheese on one slice, top with bacon, and add second kind of cheese. (You may use any combination that you have on hand.) Top with other slice of bread, and grill with a press.

I love the combo of butterkase and Gruyere for this sandwich. A little grated parmesan does not go amiss, either. Butmost any combo of good cheeses makes a great one.
