Bacon & Gorgonzola “Grilled” Cheese

Jodi Taffel


Grilled cheese and Bacon is my go-to dish. But sometimes I just don't want all the extra fat that comes from actually "grilling" it. I find that as long as the ingredients are premium, putting the sandwich in the toaster oven is a great alternative.
