These are perfect for a snack or a side to a bowl of soup! I used to make them with a crusty Italian or French loaf .......... but now I use sour dough or multi grain.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 slices crusty bread (thick slices)
  • 8 ounces cheddar cheese, sliced (medium or old)
  • 4 slices bacon

Directions

  1. Cut each slice of bacon into 2 pieces and cook under broiler or George Foreman grill; pat on paper towel to remove fat.
  2. Spread butter or margarine on each slice of bread, add slices of cheese and top with 2 pieces of cooked bacon.
  3. Place cheese dreams on a baking sheet & place under the broiler until cheese melts (watch carefully), about 2 minutes.

This is perfect for a casual, Saturday night supper. Any night actually...lunch...snack....hey why not breakfast. :) I used really thick 'slabs' of french bread. Grilled both sides before putting on the cheese and bacon, then slid it back in the toaster oven until the cheese melted. It went very well with Bobbie's Tomato & Feta Salad. Since this is the night we find out if we've made the Top 5, I wanted something easy and fast. This really fit the bill CountryLady. Honoured to make this as a "Thank You" for voting for Lawrencetown, Nova Scotia in the 2010 Kraft Hockeyville Competition.
