Notes

  • If you are using the same skillet for bacon and the grilled cheese, make sure to wipe up the bacon grease.  You do not want a soggy sandwich.
  • If you are making this diary free, place several spoonfuls of dairy free chive cream cheese on the bread.  Kite Hill has some great options and most chain grocery stores carry this brand.
