In This Recipe
Directions
  1. Place the bacon in a pan over medium heat and cook for 3-5 minutes on each side or until crisp (or cooked to your liking). In the meantime, Spread 1 side of each slice of bread with the butter.
  2. Flip each side over and spread with the jam. You'll want to use about ½ tbsp per slice. Then arrange the peaches on two of the bread slices.
  3. Divide the cheese in half and distribute between the bread slices. It may look like a lot but it will melt and shrink in volume. Next tear the bacon in half and spread evenly between the two slices.
  4. Top with the remaining bread slices (jam side down).
  5. Preheat a non-stick skillet or pan on medium heat and gently place the sandwiches, pressing down with the back of a spatula.
  6. Place the bacon in a pan over medium heat and cook for 3-5 minutes on each side or until crisp (or cooked to your liking)
