Recipe: Gourmet Grilled Cheese

Today I’m sharing Boyfriend’s amazing grilled cheese recipe!!

Here in the UK we don’t really have grilled cheese. I guess cheese on toast or a cheese toastie would be our closest alternative, but trust me, they are no where near in the same league! We had grilled cheese sandwiches when we visited New York a few years ago and they are one of the only things we loved that we’ve managed to recreate at home!

Crusty sliced bread or Farmhouse style loaf
Cheese (we used Double Gloucester)
Bacon (smoked)

Griddle pan
Grill pan (optional)
Cheese grater (optional)


– Cook your bacon. You can either grill it or cook it in the griddle pan. We like ours crispy for this recipe.

– Grate your cheese. You can slice it instead, but grated cheese melts quicker.

– Butter the outside of your bread.

– Pile your ingredients onto one piece of bread; bacon, cheese and then avocado.

– Place into the griddle pan on a medium heat and top with another slice of bread.

– After a few minutes, being sure not to burn the bread, carefully flip over your sandwich.

– When both sides are grilled to your taste and the cheese is melted, serve immediately with a nice mug of Yorkshire Tea.


A perfect, easy yet impressive looking snack to cook when entertaining a group of people for breakfast or lunch!
