The Ultimate Grilled Cheese

I got this idea from ingredients that go good in a salad and I just put them in a sandwich instead. Serve with a little Italian Dressing sprinkled with parmesan cheese on the side to dip in.

This grilled cheese is something you would expect at a fancy deli. The garlic mayo packs a punch of flavor and crisps the bread up beautifully. The Gouda melts wonderfully and it pairs perfectly with the salty bacon, spinach, and softened onion. Every bite is a gooey bit of flavor!

Note: Our sourdough was on the larger side, so we did add an extra slice of Gouda. You can never have too much cheese. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
