Grilled Cheese, It's What's for Breakfast!

May's Crazy Cooking Challenge is grilled cheese so, obviously, I've been trying out grilled cheese sandwich recipes. I can't share the recipe I'm using for the challenge, but I'm happy to tell you about all the other recipes I tried. The first one I tried, "Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Grilled Cheese Sandwich" from Lynn's Kitchen Adventures made a super-deliciously-awesome breakfast and I would happily eat it a couple times a week except it would probably kill me.

Oh, sure, I could healthify it with egg whites, fake bacon, and fat-free cheese ... but that sounds horrible. Better to eat the real deal once a month and dream about it the rest of the time.

Grilled Cheesy Breakfast

A thick slice of country-style white bread smeared with yoghurt-butter spread, topped with a slice of Cabot Seriously Sharp cheddar, and two slices of oven-baked thick-cut bacon.

Grilled Cheesy Breakfast

Topped with a fried egg. The recipe said to cook the egg until the yolk was hard, but I left mine soft -- not runny, but more like a thick, gooey gel.

Grilled Cheesy Breakfast

Fried until beautifully brown on one side and then flipped and fried on the other side.

Sliced in half, admired for a few minutes, and then scarfed down. Omnomnom. Owe Lynn's Kitchen Adventures so many thanks for publishing this recipe!
