This is a personal favourite, and it is easily modified to suit your own personal taste. Be dangerous, experiment, and when in doubt, add more cheese! WARNING: This is definitely a cheat day sandwich. Enjoy!

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place bacon in a skillet over medium-high heat; cook, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain bacon on paper towels; drain all but about 2 teaspoons bacon fat from the pan.

  • Butter each slice of sourdough bread on one side. Place bread, buttered-side down, in same skillet over medium low heat. Place ingredients evenly on one slice of bread in this order: half of Gouda cheese, bacon slices, caramelized onions, and remaining half of Gouda cheese. Top with second bread slice, buttered-side up.

  • Cook sandwich until cheese on bottom is melted and bottom slice of bread is golden brown, about 5 minutes; turn sandwich over and cook until all cheese is melted and sandwich is golden brown on both sides, about 5 minutes more.

Cook's Notes:

When using fresh bread, make sure you select two slices that are the same size.

I used double smoked Berkshire bacon and aged Gouda cheese.
