I just love bacon and garden fresh tomato sandwiches. There is nothing like it - it just screams summer time! This sandwich is sweet, spicy, and savory, with of course - garden fresh Better Boy tomato slices. The pickled onion rings add an unusual twist and are totally worth the time. You can snack on them while you are working on your sandwich - just make sure you save enough for the sandwich!

How to Make The Baconator Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Step-by-Step

  • 1In a container add all ingredients for the sauce.
  • 2Stir well to combine. Taste for salt and pepper. Refrigerate covered until ready to assemble sandwich.

    Just a note - this sauce is so good it could be used as a dip for veggies, or on burgers, and other sandwiches.
  • 3On an aluminum foil cover baking sheet place bacon. Drizzle honey over the baking and spread evenly. Sprinkle hot salt over bacon. I know it may seem odd to put salt on bacon, but the Morton Hot Salt has more heat than salt flavor.
  • 4Bake at 350 until bacon is to your liking. I like it done but not too crispy.
  • 5When bacon is done - remove and cover to keep warm.
  • 6Heat your griddle pan on medium heat. Butter bread on both sides and place on griddle. Flip and grill the other side. Place a slice of pepperjack on 2 of the slices.
  • 7Remove and place on work surface. On the other 2 slices - spread sauce generously.
  • 8Add the rest of the sandwich ingredients evenly over the the grilled bread and assemble - bacon, onion ring, tomato, and lettuce.
  • 9I hope you enjoy your bacon sandwich immensely!
