Grown-Up Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Ready in 20 minutes

A new take on a familiar favorite pairs grilled cheese with a BLT for a luscious veggie-packed sandwich that feels like an indulgence. Serve with zesty dill pickle spears. If you have extra room in your budget, pair with a sweet-tart hard cider.

"I made this for Saturday Game Night. It was a great hit! I used peppered bacon and pepperjack cheese to satisfy our spicy tastes. This will definitely be a frequent Game Night treat. "
