This decadent bacon grilled cheese features a hearty white bread that lets the aged cheddar take centre stage. I’ve buttered up the slices with bacon fat and spiced the outer crust with a simple smoky paprika sea salt. The whole ooey-gooey mess is topped with a crispy bacon skewer which is so much more than a garnish.

Bacon-Buttered Grilled Cheese with Bacon Skewer

Eating Together Made Easy

Plant-eaters — you will note that there is nary a green in sight — baring the cellophane on the bacon skewer! I’m pretty sure that that doesn’t count as plant-based, but vegans, I’ve got a grilled cheeze just for you. And one for the vegetarians, too. These recipes are all part of Menu 5, from my Make it a Meal Series, where I create plant-based menus with vegetarian and omnivore friendly options. We started out with some cheezy-battered oven fries and for dessert with got some mandarin creamsicles.

Ingredients
  • 2 slices crusty white cob bread
  • 2 slices bacon
  • bacon fat from bacon
  • 1/4 cup old cheddar, grated {or more to taste}
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked sea salt
Instructions
  1. Make the bacon skewers by folding 2 slices of bacon onto a wooden skewer. Place the skewer into a heavy-bottomed pan, cast-iron if available, and fry over medium heat, turning the skewer every few minutes until the bacon is to your desired doneness. Set aside until your sandwich is grilled. 

  2. Clean the bacon fat from the pan, reserving it to butter your bread.

  3. Mix the smoked paprika and smoked sea salt together in a small bowl.

  4. Assemble the sandwich by buttering the bread, placing the buttered side down in the pan, then adding the grated cheese, then topping with another bacon-buttered slice. Brush with smoky paprika sea salt. Grill the first side on medium heat for about 2 minutes, flip over, shake on some more salt and then grill again for another 2 minutes until the bread is toasty and the cheese is melted.

    Serve with the bacon skewer.
