Ingredients Nutrition

  • 8 slices veggie bacon
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, plus more as needed
  • 8 slices sourdough bread
  • 12 ounces cotswold cheese (double Gloucester with chives) or 12 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded

  2. Heat the butter in the skillet over medium heat.
  3. Add 2 bread slices. Top each with one-quarter of the cheese and 2 strips bacon.
  4. Spread 2 bread slices with some of the dressing and press them on top of the sandwiches, dressing-side down.
  5. Cook until the cheese melts and the bread is golden, 3 to 4 minutes per side.
  6. Repeat to make 2 more sandwiches, adding more butter as needed.
