Grilled Cheese with Bacon & Thousand Island Dressing
I picked this "keeper" out of the Food Network magazine...
I never would have thought to add Thousand Island Dressing to a grilled cheese and bacon sandwich... But boy-o-boy am I ever glad that someone else did!!
8bacon slices ( thick cut maple glazed)
8slices of sourdough bread or a hearty country white
12 ozcotswold cheese( aka: double gloucester with chives) or cheddar cheese
4 Tbspthousand island dressing ( bottled or homemade)
·***cotswold cheese can be found on line at amazon or in speciality cheese stores. for everyday meals i substitute sharp cheddar, snip a few chives over that and add a few slivers of shaved sweet onion, then the bacon.
How to Make Grilled Cheese with Bacon & Thousand Island Dressing
- Fry bacon until crisp, drain on paper towels

Butter one side of all 8 slices of bread
Add 4 slices of bread with butter side down to griddle
Top each bread slice with a quarter of the cheese, and 2 strips of bacon...spread Thousand Island on the inside of each buttered "top" bread and put down dressing side touching bacon.
