Excellent grilled cheese! My husband thinks bacon should be a food group so just about anything with bacon in it he loves and this was no exception. This was definitely a nice twist on regular 'ol grilled cheese and went great with a side of homemade tomato soup! Perfect for a night when you just don't feel like doing a lot of cooking.....

Pretty good. The only things I changed was add a tsp. of garlic powder in with the butter and added sliced tomatoes on the inside of the sandwich. Another change-up from your typical grilled cheese. And you know what I say? Bacon makes darn near everything better! Read More

These were pretty good but my family asked me to make my normal grilled cheese next time--my husband said the parmesan overpowered the taste of the cheddar. I followed the suggestion of lynniescorner and added some garlic and I enjoyed that added flavor. Thank you for sharing your recipe nevadamommy! Read More

My DD wanted to give these sammies 10 stars! They were just terrific:). I didn't have any bacon so I stuffed mine with onions and chilies. I will remember to make these again Nevadamommy. Thank You very much! Read More

I had never thought of adding things to the butter on the outside. I think this made the sandwich beyond the sandwich we had when we were kids. I took it one step further and added one fresh chopped garlic clove to a double batch. We LOVE garlic. I didn't have bacon so let them choose which luncheon meat the wanted if any. I will definitely make my sandwiches like this from now on! Great recipe. Read More
