sandwich essentials: bacon, cheese, pickle on rye

This is what I would describe as my “kicked up” version of a grilled cheese. My cheese of choice is sharp cheddar; however, choose whatever type you fancy. Easy/Peasy to make, and the siracha gives it a bit of heat. And, something great to go along with this would be some yummy tomato soup. So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

    Place the bacon into a pan over medium heat, and cook until crispy, about 3 – 5 minutes.

    Drain on paper towels, and reserve. My little buddy (Guru) wants him some bacon.

    Add the other rye slice to the top, and brush with the remaining mayo/siracha.
  • 13
    Cook over medium to medium-low heat, until toasted on both sides, and the cheese is nice and melty, about 3 – 4 minutes per side.
