Bachelor's BLT Grilled Cheese

BLT Grilled Cheese

      A grilled cheese has to be the easiest thing a Bachelor like me can make. Who doesn't like a good grilled cheese?  Turn it into a gourmet meal and you have a fantastic sandwich that you can share and even be proud of.  Now you can say I made an amazing grilled cheese.  The possibilities are limitless to what you can do to a plan old grilled cheese sandwich.  I decided tonight to take a classic American sandwich and turn it up a notch.  The classic BLT turned grilled cheese popped into my head.  I know what you’re thinking, this has been done before, but who cares, this is my take on it.  Fresh cooked bacon, fresh garden lettuce, a spiced up mayo, and good melted cheese, what could be better?  This serves just one but all you need to do is just increase the amounts for each additional sandwich.  Please enjoy my BLT Grilled Cheese.


  • 2 slices of rye bread
  • 4 strips of bacon
  • Fresh garden lettuce
  • 2 slices of provolone
  • Mayo
  • Chili pepper
  • Cayenne pepper
  • 2 slices of tomato

      First cook the bacon in a skillet as you like it.  I prefer mine a bit chewy but with just the right amount of crisp. Remove and drain on paper towel lined plate.  Next take some mayo and the chili pepper, cayenne pepper and mix until you have a nice spicy mayo.  (Base the amounts on your own preference).  Lay out the bread, spread on some mayo, lay down the bacon slices, the sliced tomato, some lettuce and the cheese.  Any order is fine.  Place the top layer on and grill on a Panini press until nice and crisp.  Viola!  A very inexpensive, gourmet style, BLT Grilled Cheese.
