Bacon Wrapped Pepperjack Grilled Cheese
8 slices Italian bread (day old works good)
16 slices bacon, approx. 1 lb
8 slices pepperjack cheese
2 TBS butter
2 TBS olive oil
1. Fold cheese slices in half. Place two pieces each between two slices of bread...making 4 sandwiches.
2. Wrap 4 slices of bacon around each sandwich. Start with wrapping one slice length wise, then wrap the other 3 pieces to cover entire sandwich. Tuck ends to seal.
3. Heat butter and oil in large skillet. Grill until crispy on both sides. Once both sides are crispy stand the sandwiches up along the edges with tongs. They should be stiff enough to stand alone. If not, you can stand them up and rest them against each other. Keep rotating until all edges are crispy.
Makes 4 sandwiches.
