Super Grilled Cheese with Canadian Bacon and Honey Mustard, by Beverly Hicks Burch
Yesterday’s recipe was a super easy homemade chicken noodle soup that’s just right for the cold rainy and/or snowy weather we’ve been having lately. It seems like the whole country has been locked into a giant industrial sized deep freezer.
I mentioned several serving suggestions to go along with the soup. Everyone has their personal “go with” when it comes to soup. Around here it depends on the soup, chowder or stew. It could be hot bread, cornbread, crackers, a hot Panini or even a gooey, hot grilled cheese sandwich.
Confession? You’re just as likely to find one of those gooey, hot grilled cheese sandwiches laying around on a plate on any given day. It seems I married a cheese freak. I recently discovered it has something to do with being a native New Mexican. Who would have know?
Growing up in my house, a grilled cheese was a sandwich with endless possibilities. As a kid, my favorite involved ketchup. Before you go “ewwwww” – try it! It’s really good. I also loved to add a few slices of kosher dill pickle or who wouldn’t love a grilled bacon – cheese sandwich?
Bacon – a food group in its own right. The food that was manna from heaven.
Yesterday, another grey, cold, rainy day, I whipped up yet another version of the “gourmet grilled cheese” for Tall & Handsome before he headed off to work.
He never grows tired of the cheese – and the variety…
Super Grilled Cheese with Canadian Bacon and Honey Mustard
For each sandwich you will need:
2 slices of your favorite bread
real butter to spread on the outside of the bread (we used fresh churned Amish butter we get at Williams Orchard – a neat little market not too far from the house)
1 slice America, cheddar or Velveeta cheese
1 slice Swiss cheese
1 slice 97% lean Canadian bacon
your favorite honey mustard
1. Spread the outsides of the bread with the butter.
2. Turn the bread over and spread honey mustard on the inside of the bread.
3. Next, layer the cheese slices and the Canadian bacon on one slice of bread. Top with the other slice of bread.
4. Place sandwich in skillet with the Canadian bacon side down first. Grill in skillet over medium heat until bread is golden brown. Flip sandwich and repeat, grilling until golden brown.
