Cheddar-Bacon-Pepper jack Grilled Cheese

So many people are looking for my old grilled cheese posts from version 1 of this blog, I’ve decided to re-post a few.  This one is a cheddar bacon pepper jack grilled cheese made by my special lady friend back in April of 2011.


  • Two slices of bread
  • Unsalted butter
  • Two slices medium cheddar cheese
  • Two or three slices pepper jack cheese
  • Bacon


  1. Take one buttered slice of bread and lay in pre-heated pan
  2. Place cheddar, then bacon, then pepper jack on top of bread
  3. Top off with other slice of buttered bread
  4. Cook on medium heat until each side is golden brown

Slow cooking is important on a sandwich such as this one.  It’s important to melt the cheese all the way through without burning the bread.  It will take longer before your sandwich is done, but it’s definitely worth the wait.  Have I mentioned I like ketchup with my grilled cheese yet?

    I need you to know that I celebrated Grilled Cheese month yesterday with a grilled cheddar-jack (not pepper jack) with ham, hard boiled egg (call me crazy, but I learned this in Ireland on sandwiches and it’s awesome), and tomato. It was DIVINE! Thanks for the inspiration!

  • Now that sounds like a good sandwich. I’m not sure if I’ve ever done egg before, but I should probably try it. We have a few boiled eggs in the fridge. Once I sliced up mushrooms (with my egg slicer so they were perfect and uniform) and layered them on a grilled cheese. You should check that out some time. Maybe even egg and mushroom together?
