Maple Bacon Grilled Cheese

Maple Bacon Grilled Cheese


For the Grilled Cheese:
• 4 Rustic Grain slices
• 8 Bacon slices
• 3/4 cups of Cheddar
• 4 slices of Smoked Cheese
• 4 tbsps of Butter
For the Maple Glaze:
• 2 tbsp Maple Syrup
• 1 tbsp Brown Sugar
• 1 tsp Balsamic Vinegar
• 1/2 tsp Dijon Mustard
• pinch of Cayenne Pepper
• salt, to taste


① Preheat oven to 350F. In a small bowl combine your glaze ingredients.
② Brush both sides of your bacon using 3/4 of your mixture and lay on a baking tray. Bake for around 10-15mins or until the bacon begins to caramelize. Take out, flip and reglaze. Pop back in the oven for another 10 mins or until sticky and fully caramelized. Timings will vary from oven to oven and also the thickness/size of your bacon, so just be vigilant throughout.
③ Place two slices of bread in a pan with the heat OFF. Spread with butter then flip over so both are butter side down. Add your smoky cheese, then maple bacon, then cheddar and finish with another slice of bread. Squish down with your hands and spread with butter.
④ Turn on heat to a medium and fry each side until golden. Slice in half and enjoy!
