Bacon jalapeño grilled cheese

Is there anything more enjoyable than a really good grilled cheese? Adding bacon and jalapeños take this comfort food classic to a new level of awesome.

There’s this moment, every time I eat a (good) grilled cheese sandwich, that I am just sure that this is the best thing I have ever eaten. When you’ve bitten through that crunchy, buttery bread and gotten to the gooey, cheese layer. It’s just magic. Now add bacon and pickled jalapeños to that? Drool-worthy stuff.

Bacon jalapeno grilled cheeseI make this version of a grilled cheese sandwich for us quite often. Lunch, indulgent breakfast, lazy dinner. This grilled cheese has featured all over the show and I can’t get enough. The trick to getting a seriously good grilled cheese is to double up on the cheese you use. I use both mozzarella for all that stringy, melty, goodness as well as mature cheddar for all that sharp flavour. It’s the best of both worlds and will result in a glorious grilled cheese, every time.
