Egg Grilled Cheese
This is such a fun recipe to make, and once you get the hang of it, it's a snap to pull together. If you prefer to skip the egg-in-the-pan trick, you can easily just layer on your eggs (hard-boiled or scrambled) outside the skillet. There are so many different ways to build this sandwich — whichever way you choose, it'll be delicious. Note that a 10-inch skillet is really the ideal size for this recipe: It fits the two slices of bread or tortilla snugly.
Technique tip: To make this even lighter, use 1 whole egg plus 2 egg whites instead of 2 whole eggs.
Swap option: Use any cheese you prefer.
Ultimate Grilled Cheese Sandwich
Cook the bacon and drain on a paper towel-lined plate. Allow to cool.
In a small skillet on medium heat, add unsalted butter. Once it melts, add an egg and season with salt and pepper. Cook egg for 2 minutes, and then flip over with a rubber spatula. Cook for another 45 seconds and then remove from the pan. Place egg on a plate and set aside.
Butter one side of each slice of bread with spreadable butter. Place a nonstick skillet on the stove and turn heat to medium. Place one slice of bread, buttered side down. Layer in the following order: most of the shredded cheddar cheese, bacon, and remaining cheddar cheese. Add the egg, sliced avocado, the slice of Muenster or Swiss cheese, and the second slice of bread with the buttered side up. Cook for 5 minutes. Using a spatula, gently flatten the sandwich. Flip over carefully and cook for another 3--4 minutes.
Slice the sandwich and serve immediately.
Why am I calling these ultimate? First off, I love grilled cheese sandwiches. There are endless combinations, and honestly, since I love cheese, bread, and butter, I don&rsquot think I&rsquove ever met a grilled cheese sandwich I didn&rsquot love.
I also LOVE making fried egg grilled cheese sandwiches, so I was thinking of how to make an ultimate version. For starters, the egg yolk must be runny. But that&rsquos my preference. You could, of course, customize this part if you prefer scrambled eggs or a completely cooked yolk.
The other components that make this an ultimate sandwich? Bacon and avocado! I love avocado in sandwiches, and bacon, well, who can say no to bacon!
To make this sandwich, start by cooking the bacon. I like to cut the pieces in half before cooking. After they finish cooking, place them on a paper-towel-lined plate to allow the grease to drain off until the bacon is cool enough to handle.
Next, fry the egg. I have these little mini cast iron skillets that are perfect for frying eggs. Make sure your skillet is well seasoned.
To fry the egg, add butter and let it melt.
Add the egg and season with salt and pepper. I cook my eggs for two minutes.
Flip and cook for another 45 seconds.
Prep the remaining ingredients: grate some sharp cheddar cheese, spread butter on the bread, and slice the avocado.
Now it&rsquos time to stack! Turn the heat to medium. Take one slice of bread and put it on the skillet, buttered side down. (By the way, I like to use a nonstick skillet for making grilled cheese. You can use the same skillet you cooked the bacon in, just wipe the pan dry first.)
Add most of the cheddar cheese on top of the bread.
Then add the bacon. Mmm, bacon.
I like to add cheese on both sides of the bacon so that when it melts, it acts as the creamy delicious glue that holds the grilled cheese sandwich together.
Now it&rsquos time to add the rest of the goodies! Add the fried egg on top.
