I love a good grilled cheese sandwich and this bacon, egg, and cheese grilled cheese sandwich is a favorite! It is basically a breakfast grilled cheese sandwich.
I have loved grilled cheese since I was a kid. We ate them often growing up and it has always been one of my favorite sandwiches to eat.
Over the years I have had fun experimenting with all kinds of grilled cheese sandwiches.
For this version of grilled cheese I made a breakfast grilled cheese sandwich.
It contains bacon, egg, and cheese grilled to perfection. Bacon, eggs, and cheese combined make a delicious combination for a grilled cheese sandwich.
This bacon, egg, and cheese grilled cheese sandwich can be eaten any time of day. You can serve this for breakfast, but it makes a great breakfast for dinner. In fact, breakfast for dinner is how I usually serve it.
- 2 slices of sandwich bread or gluten-free bread
- 2 slices of bacon that have been cooked
- 1 fried egg, cooked until the yolk is hard
- 2 slices American Cheese or cheddar cheese
- 1 teaspoon butter
- Butter one side of each slice of bread.
- Place one slice of bread, butter side down on a hot grill or panini press. Place one slice of cheese on the bread.
- Place 2 slices of bacon on top of cheese. Then place egg on top of bacon.
- Add the last slice of cheese and the second slice of bread with the butter side up.
- Cook on medium high heat for 2-3 minutes or until outside of the bread is slightly browned and the cheese is starting to melt.
- Carefully flip the sandwich over and cook for 2-4 more minutes or until the second side is done and the cheese is completely melted. (If you are using a panini press you will not need to flip the sandwich.)
- Serve and enjoy!
If you are gluten-free use gluten-free bread and read labels to make sure that your ingredients are gluten-free.
