Breakfast Grilled Cheese

Ever since I invested in a waffle iron, I’ve been dreaming up ways to use it more and more. In my latest research, I discovered that I can use it as a sandwich press—aka a perfect quick and easy way to make a grilled cheese, especially during hectic mornings.

Ingredients

  • Sliced sandwich bread
  • Cheddar cheese
  • Cooked bacon
  • Egg

  • Butter

Directions

    • 1 Make a sandwich of sliced cheese and cooked bacon strips. 
    • 2 Butter the outside of your sandwich, place it in the waffle iron and press! 
    • 3 Cook until golden and perfect and melty—mmmmmm! Remove and top with your favorite eggs (I like a fried egg). If your morning needs a little kick, drizzle on a bit of hot sauce!
