Equipment

  • Non-Stick Pan
  • Plastic Spatula/Turner
  • Bread Knife
  • Cheese Grater

Ingredients

  • 6 medium slices of Bread
  • 8 slices of Bacon, cooked to preference (optional)
  • 1-1.5 cups / 100-150g Cheddar, grated
  • 1-1.5 cups / 100-150g Mozzarella, shredded
  • Butter, as needed

Instructions

  • Lay 6 slices of bread on a chopping board and spread one side of each of them with butter.
  • Add two of them butter-side-down into a non-stick pan with the heat off. Add cheddar, mozzarella and 2 slices of bacon, then add another slice of bread on top butter-side-up.
  • Turn heat to a medium and fry until the bottom slice turns golden and the cheese starts to melt. Flip over, then top the toasted side with more cheddar, mozzarella and bacon. Add another slice of bread on top butter-side-up.
  • Once the bottom slice turns golden, flip the sandwich one last time and continue frying until golden, with the cheese nice and gooey.
  • Serve up and enjoy!

Notes

a) Fillings - Here I'm keeping it simple and adding bacon, but you could just keep it classic if you wanted to only use cheese. If on the other hand you wanted to experiment with different fillings check out all my Grilled Cheese Sandwiches for inspiration!
b) Serving - Here I've served with Tomato Soup! They're just as delicious by themselves though. Check out all my Sides if you fancy something a little extra.
c) Cheese - You can really use any cheese you fancy, I've just kept in simple here. Any sort of melty cheese works great!
d) Calories - based on using 4 tbsp butter total and 1.25cups mozzarella and cheddar. Calories per sandwich:
