    Some folks on Facebook tagged me on a video about how to make a bacon-wrapped grilled cheese.  I thought I'd give it a try.  Needless to say, it was a complete failure and a waste of perfectly tasty bacon.


    The double wrap of the bacon didn't allow for the inside layer to get cooked at all.  The bacon started coming apart as it cooked and shrunk.  The bread was a grease sponge.

    Did I mention, DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME!!!!

    I could see the issues you had with it, but it looks good! I just stick with a cheese crust. But from there you could probably add some par cooked chopped bacon with the cheese put a over easy egg in there as well it could get interesting.

    I've made a mini bacon weave using half bacon pieces. Cooked then add to the middle of the grilled cheese, or BLT!

    have made the bacon wrapped grill cheese one time . Came out good. (except of the grease in the bread) i used the thinnest cheap bacon i could find and used some smoked cheddar for the cheese . Don't think I'll make it again.

    Bear, thanks for the pic.  I used my "recycled" bacon from the grilled cheese and added it inside a revised sandwich.  I think that it should be fairly crispy.  Some of mine wasn't and it pulled out the cheese because I couldn't bite through the bacon.  Just a bad day I think.
