  1. In a small bowl, mash together the butter and Parmesan cheese until evenly blended. Make sandwiches by placing two slices of bacon and one slice of Cheddar cheese on half of the bread slices. Top with the remaining slices of bread.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Spread some of the butter mixture on the top of each sandwich. Place sandwiches butter side down in the skillet. Spread the remaining butter mixture on the other sides. Cook until golden brown on each side, about 3 minutes per side. To serve, cut in half diagonally.

Excellent grilled cheese! My husband thinks bacon should be a food group so just about anything with bacon in it he loves and this was no exception. This was definitely a nice twist on regular 'ol grilled cheese and went great with a side of homemade tomato soup! Perfect for a night when you just don't feel like doing a lot of cooking.....

Tried it with white bread and the family didnt really like new taste of this recipe compared to the classic. Didnt have garlic powder, so I tried using minced garlic.

Pretty good. The only things I changed was add a tsp. of garlic powder in with the butter and added sliced tomatoes on the inside of the sandwich. Another change-up from your typical grilled cheese. And you know what I say? Bacon makes darn near everything better!

These were pretty good, but my family asked me to make my normal grilled cheese next time--my husband said the parmesan overpowered the taste of the cheddar. I followed the suggestion of lynniescorner and added some garlic, and I enjoyed that added flavor. Thank you for sharing your recipe, nevadamommy!

My DD wanted to give these sammies 10 stars! They were just terrific:). I didn't have any bacon so I stuffed mine with onions and chilies. I will remember to make these again Nevadamommy. Thank You very much!

This was a nice twist on the standard grilled cheese. Grown ups and kids both really liked this one.

I had never thought of adding things to the butter on the outside. I think this made the sandwich beyond the sandwich we had when we were kids. I took it one step further and added one fresh chopped garlic clove to a double batch. We LOVE garlic. I didn't have bacon so let them choose which luncheon meat the wanted, if any. I will definitely make my sandwiches like this from now on! Great recipe.

after having this, bacon on grilled cheese will be a must! I used a foccacia bread and added some sliced jalapenos in the mix too. Yum!
