Grilled Goodness Sandwich

Lydia Shaulis and her family of foodies hold a grilled cheese cook-off every year. This was the (almost) winning sandwich in 2018.

2 slices bacon
2 ounces young cheddar
2 ounces mozzarella
2 ounces Muenster
2 tablespoons butter, softened
2 slices sourdough bread

To Prepare
Chop bacon into small pieces and fry over medium heat in a skillet. Remove bacon from pan and drain on a paper towel. Grate each cheese and toss together in a small bowl; set aside. Spread butter evenly on both sides of bread slices. In a separate skillet or griddle, lightly toast each side of bread slices and flip when golden brown. Add cheese mixture and bacon to one slice of toast, then top with the remaining slice of bread. Turn heat to low and cook until cheese is melted. Best served with a hearty tomato soup and a pickle.
