Sneak some veggies into that cheesy goodness

BLTs are nice, but swapping out that lettuce for some cheese and frying it up can really take a sandwich to the next level.

Ingredients

  • 2 slices ½ inch thick white bread
  • 2 slices cheddar or American cheese
  • 2 slices of cooked bacon
  • 1 slice of tomato
  • 1 Tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 Tablespoon mayonnaise

Directions

Sandwich 2 slices of cheese, 2 slices of cooked bacon, and tomato slice between the 2 slices of bread.

Preheat a skillet, and melt 1 tablespoon butter over medium-low heat.

Spread or brush the outside of the sandwich with 1 tablespoon mayo and cook until light golden brown, about 4-6 minutes. Flip the sandwich, (add more butter to the pan if needed) and cook the other side until brown and the cheese is melted, another 4-6 minutes. You can press down on the sandwich gently so it browns evenly, but don’t smash it.
