Grilled cheese and bacon

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

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.
