Grilled (Burnt) Cheese Sandwiches

I was thinking quick, easy, tasty & satisfying when I decided to make sandwiches. I told my sous chef of the decision, and the words "upset" and "disappointment" were plastered all over his face.

SC's thoughts = sandwiches = cold = tasteless = going to bed hungry = insomnia = depression = suicidal

Little did he know that those words he thought of were too far from the sandwiches I had in mind HA-HA! Look at these babies, lack of which might really cause depression.

I started with these, my favorite, Maxim's 5 Grain Bread, a pretty healthy start, eh?


Then I added (on each sandwich) 2 slices of cheddar cheese, 2 strips of bacon (nuked to heat up), fried egg, slathered each slice of bread with butter, mayo, ketchup. Slather butter on outer part of bread, press and let each side sizzle on hot pan until the slices of cheese melt and the bread turned gloriously golden.

If you had Discovery Travel & Living ON while grilling the sandwiches, just like me, this is what's gonna happen:

Funnily, SC loved the burnt ones, and discovered a newfound love for sandwiches, albeit unhealty ones *grin* (turning healthy things into tasty-unhealthy-treats, my blessing, my curse *double grin*)

That grilled cheese sandwich sounds so good! My favorite part of a grilled cheese sandwich is the cheese that melts, oozes out the sides and burns on the pan.
