Brussels Sprouts and Bacon Grilled Cheese

I love grilled cheese. A crispy outside, soft bread in the middle, and warm, gooey cheese.  I’d never thought much about a twist on it. the most I do is add some turkey.  I found an entire section of grilled cheese makeovers. This one was, by far, the most appetizing! 

The Brussels sprouts get cooked in some of the bacon grease. They are almost fried. When you bite into the sandwich you get the crisp bacon, the crunch of the Brussels sprouts, and the creaminess of the cheese. It’s got to be the best grilled cheese I’ve ever made!

Brussels Sprouts and Bacon Grilled Cheese

-1 slice bacon
-1/3 cup mozzerella cheese
-2 brussels sprouts, thinly sliced
-2 slices of bread

In a skillet, fry up the bacon. Let it drain on paper towels. Remove all but 1 tablespoon of the grease. Add the Brussels sprouts, and let them cook until they are tender on the outside, but still have a crunch on the inside. It should only take 2 or 3 minutes. Wipe out the pan. Add 1 tablespoon butter to the pan. Once it’s melted, cook the sandwich, about 4 minutes on each side, until it’s browned. If its necessary, add more butter the pan. And then you’ll have an amazing grilled cheese sandwich!
