Bacon Pesto Grilled Cheese

We are at it again with the bacon pesto flavor profile. This time, in a quick and easy 10 minute meal! And by meal, I mean a meal near and dear to basically everyone’s heart, a grilled cheese. Cuz, who doesn’t love a grilled cheese?

Also, I am notorious for burning my grilled cheese sandwiches so i make them in a non stick pan with no oil or butter or mayo. That’s just me. For whatever reason I don’t have a good feel for making them those ways. But you do you!

4 ingredients. That’s it. This recipe makes one sandwich.

  • 2 slices of Bacon
  • 2 oz Pesto
  • 2 slices Whole Wheat Bread
  • Handfull of shredded Mozzarella

The Cook

First, spread the PESTO on one side of each slice of WHOLE WHEAT BREAD.

Place the BREAD, PESTO side up, in a non stick pan on MEDIUM HEAT. Cover the bread with MOZZARELLA cheese.

In a separate medium skillet, fry your BACON to your desired crispiness.

Frying Bacon

Once BACON is cooked, transfer BACON directly on to the MOZZARELLA in one side of the BREAD. Close the second slice of BREAD on top of the first.

Thick Cut Bacon is the best kind of Bacon
