The Ultimate Grilled Cheese Sandwich
The perfect combination of cheese, bacon and onions make this grilled cheese sandwich one to be desired by many.
- 1 Tbsp butter
- 1 medium onion, halved & thinly sliced
- 1 ½ tsp Slap Ya Mama Low Sodium Blend Seasoning
- 8 slices thick cut bacon, cut in half
- 3 Tbsp mayonnaise
- 1 tsp Slap Ya Mama Cajun Pepper Sauce
- 8 slices sharp cheddar cheese
- 4 slices sourdough bread, slices no thicker than a ½ inch
- 4 Tbsp butter, softened or spreadable
In a large skillet over medium heat, melt 1 Tbsp of butter. Add onions and 1 tsp of Slap Ya Mama Low Sodium Blend Seasoning. Stirring consistently, sauté onions until they are golden brown and soft. Remove from pan and set aside on a plate.
Using the same skillet, fry the bacon until crispy. Remove from pan and set aside on a paper towel covered plate to let drain.
In a bowl, combine mayonnaise, Slap Ya Mama Cajun Pepper Sauce and ½ tsp of Slap Ya Mama Low Sodium Blend Seasoning. Mix well and set aside.
Sandwich Assembly: Spread mayo mixture on the inside of each slice of bread. Working from the bottom slice up, add 4 pieces of bacon, 2 slices of cheese, onions, 4 pieces of bacon, 2 more slices of cheese and top with a slice of bread. Using softened butter, spread 1 Tbsp of butter on the outside of the top slice of bread.
In a skillet over medium-low heat, place sandwich butter side down. Butter the top side of the sandwich with another 1 Tbsp and continue grilling sandwich on both sides until the bread is golden brown and the inside of the sandwich is ooey gooey with melted cheese.
Using a sharp serrated knife, cut sandwich in half and enjoy.
NOTE: This recipe will make 2 large grilled cheese sandwiches due to the fact that we used larger than normal slices of bread. If using regular sized slices of bread, this recipe may make 4 sandwiches total.
