Updated May 3, 2021

Ingredients

  • 8 teaspoons mayonnaise
  • 4 slices sourdough sandwich bread
  • 2 slices deli sliced American cheese (2 oz)
  • 4 slices cooked bacon
  • 1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese (2 oz)
  • 1/2 cup shredded Gruyère cheese (2 oz)

Steps

  • 1
    Spread 2 teaspoons mayonnaise on one side of each slice of bread.
  • 2
    On the uncoated side of 2 bread slices, place 1 slice American cheese and 2 slices bacon. Top each with 1/4 cup cheddar cheese, 1/4 cup Gruyère cheese and 1 slice remaining bread, mayonnaise side out.
  • 3
    Heat 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add sandwiches; cook uncovered 3 to 4 minutes or until bottom sides are golden brown. Carefully turn; cook 2 to 4 minutes longer or until bottom sides are golden brown and cheeses are melted.

  • Try mixing it up a little by swapping out sliced apples for the bacon and using apple butter as a dipper to add a sweet note to the savory cheeses.
  • Give this grilled cheese a French onion soup twist by adding caramelized onions.
  • Looking for a little heat? Try adding sliced jalapeños. While you’re at it, sliced avocados would also make a delicious addition.
