Ultimate Grilled Sandwich

READY IN: 11mins
Recipe by Sweet PQ

I clipped this from the newspaper a while back. It's a great sandwich with a twist from the ordinary. Please try to use the sourdough, it makes the sandwich. NOTE: Prep time does not include the time it takes to cook the bacon.

This was very good. I did use red onion instead of vidalia onion because that was what I had and it was very good. I also had never tried putting the mayonaise on the outside. I can't say that it added any extra flavor but it did brown nicely. Make for Holiday Tag. Thank you!
