As the mornings get a bit colder and the nights a little spookier, staying inside and enjoying some warm food while watching a movie sounds like the perfect date.
The following is one of our favorite recipes: Grilled cheese with Applewood smoked bacon
- Country style white bread
- Dijon mustard
- Cheddar cheese
- Apple wood smoked bacon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Once pre-heated, place bacon on a cookie sheet over parchment paper and put it in the oven for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. This will keep the bacon from curling or getting stuck to each other.
Heat up a skillet on medium-high with a tablespoon of butter. While it’s melting, spread some Dijon mustard on one side of each slice of bread. Once butter is melted, place the slice of bread into pan (mustard side up) and apply cheddar cheese…let it cook for a few seconds so that cheese begins to soften. Apply bacon and more cheese and top with second slice of bread, this one mustard side down.
Before flipping, add a little more butter to the skillet then flip, this will ensure that both sides are cooked to perfection. Remove and place on serving tray. Enjoy!
