Ultimate Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Serves: 2

This is a great combination of ingredients! It truly is the ultimate grilled cheese.

Dovetailing Tip: When making the bacon for todays sandwich cook a totol of 24 slices, This a lot of bacon but it will save you from cooking it for the rest of the week. You will use it in Harvest Cobb Salad, day 1. Layered Salad day 2. Brussels Sprouts Gratin day 3. Butternut Squash Alfredo Pasta, day 3.

Prep Time:
Cook Time:
Total Time:


1 tablespoon butter
1 whole medium onion, halved and sliced
4 slices bacon, cut in half
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
dash several hot sauce (i used louisiana)
2 slices sandwich bread
3 whole hard boiled eggs, peeled and sliced
salt and pepper, to taste
2 slices cheese, any variety (i used swiss and monterey jack)
more butter, for grilling


Melt the butter in a skillet over medium-low heat and cook the onions low and slow for about 20 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove them to a place when they're deep golden brown and soft.

Fry the bacon in the same skillet until slightly crisp. Remove to a paper towel to drain.

Combine the mayonnaise and the hot sauce and stir. Taste and add more hot sauce if needed.

Sprinkle the sliced eggs generously with salt and pepper.

To assemble, spread one side of each piece of bread with the spicy mayo. Build the sandwich however you wish: eggs, bacon, cheese, onions, more eggs, more cheese. Spread one side of the assembled sandwich with softened butter and put it butter-side down on a griddle or skillet over medium-low heat. Spread the top side with butter, then continue grilling the sandwich until the bread is golden and slightly crisp and the filling is warm/cheese is melted.

Cut in half with a sharp serrated knife and share with a loved one!
