“A flavorful twist on a classic dish; the Grilled Cheese. I use Cabot Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese, though feel free to experiment with your favorite cheeses. Because of the richness of the Bacon and Prosciutto, I don't feel the need for as much cheese as I typically would on a sandwich. The bread can vary also, I enjoy some sort of Italian style, such as a Tuscan Loaf. The better the bread, the better the sandwich! This is a fairly foolproof recipe, as long as you don't burn anything during cooking, you should feel free to adjust the ingredients to taste. These are just my personal preferences for level of spice and flavor.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. The Bacon and Prosciutto needs to be grilled, so start your grill to a Medium-High Heat.
  2. Take your garlic and rub it over the bread, trying to squeeze the juice onto it. Spread the butter on both pieces of bread.
  3. Mince the Garlic and Parsley, and spread just a tad of the finely minced garlic onto the buttered side of the bread. Leave some to use later.
  4. Take your cheese and place it on a non-buttered side of bread. Take your remaining garlic and parsley and season to taste.
  5. Place a frying pan on the stove and turn it to Medium Heat.
  6. When your grill is hot, start by placing the bacon over the flames. I do about a 1.5 minutes on one side then maybe a minute on the other. Just grill it to the crispyness you prefer. When you bacon is nearly done, place your prosciutto over the flames. This does not need to be for long! It is just to crisp the Prosciutto slightly.
  7. When done place the Bacon and Prosciutto on the cheese. Place your other slice of bread over it and set in frying pan to cook. (Buttered sides of bread should be out) Cover pan for 2 minutes. Flip with Spatula, side should be slightly crispy and brown. Cook on remaining side for another 1.5-2 minutes covered.
  8. Remove and enjoy!
