Last Saturday was my 26th Birthday – as a result, this post has been slightly delayed due to a massive hangover! (As was expected to be honest.) I have literally had the best Birthday I have had in ages though. Being totally spoilt by the Mr & partying with friends & family – I couldn’t have wished for a better Birthday. So a MASSIVE shout out to everyone who came to celebrate with me – I had a blast – thank you!
So! Back to the munch. This little beaut is an awesome breakfast, brunch, lunch or snack. I know I said “grilled” but it’s actually fried. It derived from America and they always seem have different terminology to us Brits! To be honest though – anything with bacon and melted cheese in it is going to be freakin’ awesome!
What you will need to make 3 Sandwiches
- 6 Large slices of White Bread
- 3 tbsp Butter
- approx 200g Cheddar Cheese, grated
- 6 Slices of Bacon
First you need to cook your bacon. I have recently found a great, mess free way of cooking bacon that still gives the perfect crispy edges. Cover a baking sheet with foil and lay the strips of bacon on it. Place into a COLD oven and then turn up to 200°C/Fan 180°C. It should take about 20 minutes for the fat to render and go crispy. Turn halfway to make sure both sides cook evenly. I also find that tipping out the juices halfway helps. When cooked, leave to one side. And this way – you won’t even need to wash the baking sheet – see, mess free!!
Ok, next up, melt a tablespoon of butter in a large non stick frying pan. When the butter starts to froth, lay in two slices of white bread.
Whilst the bread is still in the pan – take some grated cheese and spread it across one slice then top with 2 slices of bacon.
Now after a minute or so – gently start to lift the edges of the sandwich with your spatula. Look to see if the cheese has gone crispy & lightly golden. When it has, sprinkle some cheese on the top, press and flip again. Fry until the cheese is crispy.
I know it’s not healthy and I know it’s not nutritional but just look a that cheesy bacony goodness! I mean seriously, it’s so bloody delicious I could have eaten another two! It also turned out to be part of a surprisingly great hangover cure! This is a breakfast I have made before and will definitely make again.
I hope you enjoyed the post guys n gals!
Until next time – au revoir.
