Quesadillas were on the menu tonight, but when I rummaged through the drawer pulling out ingredients I realized I had a half a package of bacon that needed to be used up. I'd pinned this grilled cheese just the other day, and decided to make that dinner.
I am still totally in love with my Cuisinart Griddler. I cooked the bacon on it, then assembled the sandwiches and pressed them on it. I don't like mayo, so I substituted sour cream.
Unfortunately for me, I didn't get the sandwiches plated before the sun went down and had to depend on the lovely energy efficient bulbs for my lighting. Thanks so much Fashion Edible, go check out the pics on her site!
