Question of the Day:

Should grilled cheese sandwiches contain bacon or not? (or something else entirely?)

    No way! Why ruin a perfectly good grilled cheese with dead piggies? 🙂

    Grilled cheese needs a bit of protein and everyone knows that bacon is the nectar of the gods. Why else would the Jews have made it off limits. Something that good is obviously bad right? If I don’t have some sort of meat, bacon, roast beef, etc., my sandwich is just kind of blah.

    I have never heard of anyone ask for grilled cheese and be disappointed that it didn’t come with bacon. Grilled Bacon Cheese Sandwich? Sounds like something off the BK breakfast menu.

    Well, I’ve put ham on a grilled cheese before and it’s really good. Never thought of bacon. Not sure I want to try.

    Grilled cheese w/ sharp cheddar and/or pepperjack cheese are my favorite. For awhile we put in cut up ham to go in the sandwich and that was pretty tasty too.

    My hubby loves a grilled cheese sandwich with bacon. I just prefer it plain with good tomato soup to dip it in. Though, tomatoes in the sandwich aren’t bad either.

    I think you should take away the cheese and just add bacon and it would be a good sandwich. 🙂 (I hate cheese if you didn’t guess that already.)

    It’s one of those magical foods that is good avec or sans bacon.

    I’ve never heard of grilled cheese with bacon. Must be a Missouri thing. Lots of people here serve the sandwich with pickle chips, but they are served on top of the grilled cheese, not cooked into it, so that’s completely different.

    I personally would say no bacon. While I clearly have never had a grilled cheese with bacon, I’ve occasionally grilled a sandwich with lunch meat in it. But at that point I never call it a grilled cheese. It’s a grilled sandwich, with cheese and ham/turkey/beef/whatever. The very nature of a grilled cheese sandwich is that it is bread and cheese, and that is it. Cut it into triangles and add some tomato soup to dip it in, and you are set.

    And now, I really want tomato soup and grilled cheese. It’s rainy and cold here today. Perfect weather for this kind of thing.

      u’re making tons of sense shannon!
      my fave is german rye with swiss, and of course, tomato soup with basil.

      i know someone who can make thousands of dollars in one weekend selling grilled cheese sandwiches at music festivals.

      dan and i have fanticized about buying a VW van and traveling the world via festival, and we discussed how we might handle the tomato soup necessity. it would simply create too much waste to serve soup from a cart – it wouldn’t be portable enough for the customers, and it would be excess waste/overhead.

      not to mention that most of the festivals have earth conscious intentions.

      we have it all figured out-we’ll offer spelt, kamute, or white bread, and maybe dark rye-cause that’s my fave, and cheddar, swiss, or vegan cheese, and tomato slices… there is just something about the tomato and grilled cheese relationship that is beautiful isn’t there?

      btw, ewe on the pickle chips.

      and i can take or leave the bacon, i’ve put ham on it, but usually add lettuce, and then it IS indeed just a grilled sandwich.

      good thing I just ate or I would be starving now!
