There’s nothing better than taking a childhood-favorite comfort food and making it even more awesome than you remember. This take on Grilled Cheese is a 2.0 not only because it is a grown-up version of the classic white toast with American cheese sandwich, but also because it features two of my favorite ingredients: bacon and avocado. No, this sandwich isn’t for the health-conscious, vegans or vegetarians. But you can also have fun with this sandwich. Add a fried egg and make it for breakfast, or go with goat cheese, fresh tomato slices and basil for an Italian twist.

Grilled Cheese 2.0
Serves 2

Ingredients 

  • 4 slices of whole grain bread
  • 4-5 slices of cheese (mozzarella, halloumi, scamorza will work)
  • 1 avocado, thinly sliced
  • 2-3 slices of thick cut bacon
  • 1-2 tbsp. butter for toasting the bread
  • 1 tbsp. dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp. mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp. finely chopped fresh herbs (basil and parsley)

Directions

  1. Toast the bread
  2. Fry the halloumi on a grill or stove top with a bit of olive oil, just until it browns on the edges
  3. Fry the bacon until crispy
  4. Mix mayonnaise and dijon mustard with your freshly chopped herbs before smearing onto the toast. 
  5. Prepare the sandwich by layering all the ingredients together and then warm it up in a pan to make sure it’s nice a melty
