The Very Virginia Ultimate Father's Day Sandwich

The Ultimate Father’s Day Sandwich

This Father’s Day ignite Dad’s taste buds with a delicious twist on a traditional grilled cheese or is it a twist on a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. In any case, this pairing comes together to form a bold, craveable gooey grilled cheese sandwich. Here is a recipe from The Food Channel for a PB&J Grilled Cheese Sandwich with Bacon:

  • 2 slices French loaf or sourdough bread
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoons creamy natural peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon blackberry preserves
  • 3 strips bacon, cooked crisp
  • 4 slices sharp white Cheddar cheese

  1. Butter one side of each slice of bread.
  2. Spread peanut butter and blackberry preserve on bottom slice of bread.
  3. Top with bacon and cheese slices.
  4. Close with top slice of bread and press closed.
  5. Grill over medium-low heat for 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until golden and cheese is melted.

Foodie Byte: Use a bold flavored cheese with good melting abilities, such as sharp white cheddar cheese, to stand up to all the other flavors in this gooey-rich grilled cheese.
