Gourmet Grilled Cheese

This grilled cheese hits all of the right notes, and will remain in your memory forever!  Its complex and complementary flavors really do sing.  Pair it with a cup of soup or a salad, or both for lunch and you'll hear music the rest of the day!

For each sandwich:

2 slices sourdough or other crusty bread

Red Onion Jam

1 slice each, Cheddar & Muenster, or your favorites

3 slices crisp cooked bacon

Butter

To make sandwich:

Spread a thin layer of Red Onion Jam on each slice of bread.  Place two slices of bacon on one slice, top with cheese, and place third slice of bacon on top. Place second slice of bread on top and spread with butter. 

Place the sandwich on the panini grill, buttered side down, then butter the top slice of bread and close the grill.  Cook until the cheese begins to ooze out the sides a bit and the bread is a deep golden brown. 

Remove from the grill and allow to rest for a minute or two before cutting in half.  Serve immediately.
