Bacon Lingonberry Grilled Cheese Sandwich
The holy grail of grilled cheese sandwiches with soft, gooey gruyere cheese, sharp jalapeno, tart-sweet lingonberry with layers of salty smoky bacon encompassed in a simple olive loaf (oh! and butter)
or 3/4 cup shaved gruyere cheese
easily found at Ikea, cherry jam will work too
any bread will do, I used an olive loaf
Slather the bread with butter on both sides before you begin, this will moisten the bread while you prep the other ingredients. Cook the bacon until golden brown and set aside.
Layer the bread with gruyere, jalapeno, generous amounts of lingonberry jam and bacon, topping off with more cheese
Grill on a heated pan on both sides till the cheese melts. Cut lengthwise and serve immediately
