Description

This post includes two grilled cheese sandwiches never seen on my blog before.  I entered them both in the Wisconsin Grilled Cheese Sandwich contest in 2018.  My Sweet and Salty Grilled Cheese sandwich video received $1000 for being a fan favorite sandwich.  Both my Southern Grilled Cheese sandwich and my Sweet and Salty Grilled Cheese sandwich have videos below with the full step by step recipe.


Ingredients

POTATOES AND ONIONS

  • Two tablespoons vegetable oil.
  • One baking potato, sliced thin on mandoline
  • One small onion, sliced thin on mandoline

One Chicken Breast, baked with salt, pepper, and garlic

  • 4 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • Slice Bread, four pieces
  • Four teaspoons Jalapenos, minced
  • Four tablespoons BBQ Sauce
  • 3 slices sharp cheddar cheese
  • one slice Havarti cheese
  • 4 slices bacon, cooked

Instructions

  • Peel the baking potato and onion.
  • Using a mandolin, slice both the onion and potato.
  • Add the oil to a skillet on medium heat and place the onions and potatoes in the skillet.
  • Cook until tender and potatoes form a brown crust on them.
  • Add a tablespoon of mayonnaise to each slice of bread and place the mayo side down in a griddle or skillet.
  • Add a tablespoon of BBQ sauce to the top side of each piece of bread.
  • Place two teaspoons of minced Jalapenos on the BBQ sauce.
  • Add two pieces of sharp cheddar cheese on top of the BBQ sauce on both pieces of bread.
  • Slice the chicken breast in half horizontally.
  • Add one piece of the chicken breast on top of one piece of bread.
  • Place two pieces of bacon on the chicken breast.
  • Top the bacon with a slice of Havarti cheese.
  • On the other side of the bread on top of the Jalapenos, layer on the fried potatoes and onions.
  • Carefully close the sandwich.
  • Add a tablespoon of water beside the grilled cheese and place a dome over the sandwich.
  • Grilled until the cheese is gooey.  Both sides of the bread should already be toasted

Notes

This grilled cheese is thick.  Toast both slices of bread in a griddle or skillet before placing the top of the sandwich.  Add a tablespoon of water beside the sandwich and place a lid or dome over the sandwich.  This will help it steam and melt the cheeses.
