Blue Cheese & Bacon Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Blue Cheese Grilled Cheese

Fuck Man, cheese. It’s the one. Also blue cheese. Sometimes I get cravings for it. I may have covered that before when I put up my blue cheese scone recipe. But it’s something I could easily chat about for ages. I often find myself sat with friends just talking cheese and realise that a good 45 minutes has gone past. I also really like bacon. Bacon is good. Basically what I’m trying to say is that I’m really good with hangover/comfort food. The other day I made an awesome 3 cheese & chorizo mac’n’cheese (I’m going to put the recipe up for that soon) and I had some leftover blue. So what did I do? Grilled Cheese Sandwich. Stuffed with blue cheese, mozzarella, basil and bacon.

Grilled Cheese Sandwich

I used my frying pan for this, and it came out wonderfully. It’d work a number of other ways. Toastie machine, grill etc. Just make sure you both sides are golden and that the cheese has reached that wonderful gooey stage. There isn’t much more I can say about this other than: MAKE THE FUCK OUT OF THIS.

Blue Cheese & Bacon Grilled Cheese Sandwich
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 1 Sandwich
  • 2 Slices of bread, buttered on one side of each slice (I used white)
  • Blue cheese (I used Stilton)
  • 5-6 pieces of Mozzarella (Sliced off a ball)
  • 3-4 Basil leaves
  • 4 Bacon Rashers, fried (I used streaky)
  1. Heat up a non stick frying pan.
  2. While it's heating up form the sandwich. The buttered sides need to face outwards. Layer blue cheese, mozzarella, basil and bacon. Making sure that there is a layer of cheese either side of the bacon/basil.
  3. Place on the warm pan, butter side down. Leave to fry for about 90 seconds, making sure it doesn't stick to the pan.
  4. Flip and fry for 30 seconds, then check that both sides are cooked. They should be golden brown.
  5. Press down while it's frying to help push the cheeses together.
  6. Slice down the middle and serve
