Grilled Cheese And Bacon Sammich
(with comments)

Josh Ozersky writes: Grilled Cheese and Bacon and Me. If you thought making such a sandwich would be a simple matter, think again.

In its platonic form, it is surely the most perfect sandwich ever created. Three separate fats -- margarine, milkfat, and savory bacon lard - conjoin to create a prismatic aurora of pure satisfiability.

Then there is the contrast between the smoky, salty sweetness of the bacon with the muted sharpness of the cheese.

Finally, there is the exquisite opposition between the rugged crunch of bacon, and the viscous oneness of the cheese in which it is suspended - to say nothing of the contrast of both with carefully browned bread.

    Don't use margarine, it's a hydrogenated transfat and not good for you. You can use butter to fry it up with, if you want. I recommend baconfat, it's a wholesome natural byproduct of the sandwich making process.

    Eat Healthy!

    I like the butcher bacon with Mozzarella and Provolone or Gouda or Extra Sharp Cheddar on a Dutch crust or jewish rye and always use Challenge butter

    Sometimes add a fried egg

    And yet, no one in the A.L. clan can figure why the nephew is single.

    Not sure what clan or state you're in Chris J., but here in California we don't marry them off when they're only 14.

    PS: that's a.l.

    I made 'em with a regular clothing iron in my college years. I had no other use for an iron in college :)
