BLT Grill Cheese
One of my daughter's loves to eat, create and sample sandwiches, I think one day if she could just stay in the kitchen and create sandwiches all day, that would be her dream job. Her children are going to get AWESOME sandwiches everyday for lunch, because this is her speciality. But, off to college she goes in the fall and we'll see what God has in store for her. Major (so far) is Business, Marketing and a Minor in Dance. I don't see any college classes for "making sandwiches", she can just do that on the side in her dorm room!

Love finding old photos of my twins! This was on vacation and they are SHARING a sandwich,
I don't think that would ever happen now (they are 18 years old now too!)
We have found a few great sandwiches and featured them here and this one by far is our all-time favorite Grill Cheese with Bacon & Thousand Island Dressing, but since that sandwich is already posted we had to create a new one for today's post! And what better sandwich to recreate then the BLT, we decided to make a BLT into a Grill Cheese. DELICIOUS! 

BLT Grill Cheese
created by Tina Hudgens

2-3 slices bacon, cooked
1/4 cup White Cheddar Cheese
2 tsp finely grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
1/8 tsp crushed red pepper flakes (or to taste)
2 slices thick Italian bread
2 slices ripe tomatoes
2 slices avocado
1 left of lettuce
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp Pesto & 1 tbsp Mayonnaise (mix together)

Makes 1 Sandwich: Combine the cheeses and red pepper flakes in a small bowl. Butter one side of both pieces of bread. Lay one slice of the bread down in a heated skillet and spread the inside of the bread with the mayo/pesto mixture. Top it with the cheese, 2 slices of bacon and then 2 slices of tomatoes.

Cook butter side down in the pan and cook on the first side until the bread is golden brown and toasted.  Flip the sandwiches using a spatula and continue to cook on the other side until the bread is golden brown. You can use the spatula to compress the sandwich as it cooks on the second side.
