Quick & Easy Meals X 2



Every Now & Then we feel like something Quick, Light, and Easy.
So How about a “Grilled Bacon & Cheese Sammy”

So First I fry up a little Bacon.
I'll be making one with Bacon & one without.
Then I Butter the insides of 4 slices of Italian Bread, and put a slice of cheese on each Buttered side.
Then I laid the Bacon across 1 of the slices of cheese, and slap the halves together.
Then I butter one outside of each of the 2 Sammies, and put them in the Pan.
Then I butter the other 2 sides, while the first side is being toasted.
All that’s left is to flip them over a few times, until both sides are just the way I like them.
Sometimes I cut them from corner to corner, like I did here.


Then the next day, I really got Lazy, when I got two Frozen French Bread Pizzas out.
I put them on the Baking Pan of my AirFryer #360, and added some extra Pepperoni.
Then I set it at 390° & kept it in there for about 12 minutes.

Great Stuff for a Lazy Bear!!!

Once the buttered sides are down, I butter the other sides. Then flip them around until they get lightly toasted, the way I like them:

Looks great ! I can almost taste those pizzas . We're due for some of those .
I like the book matched bread on the grilled cheese . Never tried bacon . Hmm . Another idea .
That finished sandwich looks perfect . Try it with salami some time .
Nice work .

"Bookmatched" There's a word I haven't used in over 10 years!
Used to use it often, when I made "Wainscot" to go with My Kitchens.
And Thanks for the Like.

Bacon and grilled cheese is a great combo. Haven't done that in awhile. May have to revisit that. Sometimes I don't even grill them. Just get the bacon real crisp and put it between a couple of pieces of soft bread for a nice blend of textures to go with the great flavor.

My wife is a bit of a grilled cheese snob. Not that she has any special or unique recipe, just that you don't mess with the GC sandwich she's been eating since she was a kid. I mentioned Bear's addition of bacon and she said, "Wow! That sounds GREAT!"

Thank you, Bear!
