Bacon Grilled Cheese


Now you want to talk about a good lunch! Now you have to be careful when you eat this because it has been known to put some folks to sleep. I'm normally not a fan of bacon sandwiches, its usually not enough meat for me (you can take that however you like). However this sandwich had me at bacon and avocados.


4 slices honey wheat bread
2 tablespoons butter, softened
3 ounces smoked cheddar or Pepper Jack cheese, sliced
4 slices crisp-cooked bacon
1 small avocado, peeled, pitted, and sliced
2 tomato slices
1 tablespoon light mayonnaise
1 teaspoon honey

1. Butter one side of all the bread. On the unbuttered sides of 2 slices place cheese, bacon, avocado, and tomato. Combine light mayonnaise and honey. Spread on unbuttered side of remaining 2 bread slices. Place mayonnaise side down on top of tomatoes. 2. In skillet or griddle, cook over medium heat 4 to 6 minutes, until toasted and cheese is melted, turning once. Or place in preheated panini maker; cook 2 to 3 minutes. Makes 2 sandwiches.
