Bacon Double Cheeseburger Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Bacon Double Cheeseburger Grilled Cheese Sandwich

April is National grilled cheese month! Given my obsession with grilled cheese sandwiches you can bet that there are going to be some new grilled cheese sandwiches on Closet Cooking over the next few weeks starting off with these absolutely tasty bacon double cheeseburger grilled cheese sandwiches! The idea here is to include all of the flavours of a mouth watering bacon double cheese burger in grilled cheese form. This sandwich starts out with the bacon and then it moves on to some ground beef that is seasoned with some classic burger patty flavours such as onions, garlic, worcestershire sauce and salt and pepper or steak seasoning. You can't have a burger without some condiments like ketchup and/or mustard and since you don't really want a soggy grilled cheese sandwich I add them to the ground beef and cook off some of the excess moisture. Up next is the double cheese, the cheddar and mozzarella, followed by the fresh condiments including shredded lettuce, diced tomato and pickle. (You could skip the lettuce and tomato but trust me they work well in the sandwich without wilting or making it soggy.) I have to say that these are one of my new favourite grilled cheese sandwiches and they taste just like a bacon double cheese burger, only better!

Thats called a patty melt.

You have been posting a lot of over-the-top junk food stuff lately, I'm wondering if you get more hits that way. This is like something you'd see Guy Fieri selling at a TGI Fridays. I know you have better taste than this.

Julie @ Table for Two said...

wow, this is something I'd love all month long!!

You can't go wrong with a classic grilled cheese or a cheeseburger. Putting them together, oh my, looks out of this world.

Just found out that April is national grilled sandwich month and I just purchased a foreman grill so I thought I would come to visit to see what you have been grilling. Cheese, hamburger and bacon with all the fixings is a sure hit with my teenage boys. Take Care, BAM

Maureen said...

That's the most gorgeous sandwich!

Randal L. Schwartz said...

Looks like a pretty healthy meal, except for that artery clogging, gliadin rich couple of slices of bread. If you leave that off, it's something I'd be happy to eat.

Kevin said...

Randal L. Schwartz: How about lettuce wraps?

that is one foodporn worthy photo!
my stars Kevin!!

First of all, I too LOVE your pictures! Such an incredible job! I wanted to ask if the bread you do the sandwiches on is home made? Seems to me that if you are going to all the trouble to make them so amazing, they should be on home baked bread! Have you tried it? I bake most of what we eat and it is amazingly better than anything on the supermarket shelves. Thank you for your time and efforts! I love your site!

Unknown: I generally use either a sour dough or a Bavarian light rye for my grilled cheese sandwiches. I do make my own bread but I do not do it all that often because I find that I eat most of the loaf when it is fresh from the oven. :)

MrsDiGiacomo said...

Okay, this was delicious. Didn't have pickles, so we used home made sauerkraut instead. Mmm good! Also, you inspired me to create a donair grilled cheese sandwich with sweet sauce. So good! Thanks for your yummy recipes!

Do you cook your bread in an oven or do you use bread machines? Which do you prefer? Your entrees are totally yummy and gorgeous in your pics!!!

Kevin Lynch said...

Anonymous: Thanks! I prefer oven baked to bread machine but a bread machine is easier.

what about the mixed ketchup? im spreading that to the sandwich right?

Kevin Lynch said...

Anonymous: The ketchup is mixed into the meat to cook off some of the moisture so you won't end up with a soggy sandwich. I enjoy dipping the sandwich in more ketchup as I eat it! :)
