Ingredients

12 slice
cooked bacon
1 c
good mayo
1/4 c
djion mustard
1/4 c
grated parmesan
1 1/2 tsp
kosher salt
1/2 tsp
black pepper
1
loaf of country white bread sliced thick
6 Tbsp
salted butter
6 oz
gruyere cheese
6 oz
extra sharp cheddar

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Arrange the bacon on a baking rack set over a sheet pan in a single layer and roast for 20 to 30 minutes, until nicely browned. Drain on a plate lined with paper towels and cut in 1-inch pieces.
2
Meanwhile, combine the mayonnaise, mustard, Parmesan, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Lay 12 slices of bread on a board and spread each one lightly with butter. Flip the slices and spread each one generously with the mayonnaise mixture. Don't neglect the corners!
3
Grate the cheeses in a food processor fitted with the largest grating disk and combine. Distribute the bacon evenly on half the slices of bread. Pile 1/3 cup grated cheese evenly on top of the bacon and top with the remaining bread slices, sauce side down.
4
Meanwhile, heat an electric panini press. When the press is hot, cook the sandwiches for 3 to 5 minutes in batches until the bread is toasted and the cheese is melted. Allow to cool for 2 minutes. Cut in half and serve warm.
5
If you don't have a panni then cook on the griddle and weight down with a plate.
