Chipotle Bacon Grilled Cheese

BACON!!!! Oh yes, I said it…BACON!

People are always asking me what they can use our Hot Pepper Oil for…well this crispy, spicy, ooey gooey, bacon grilled cheese sandwich with NOT disappoint. You can make a ton for game night, or just one with a cup of soup on a cold day. Sliced Gouda is available in most grocery deli cases but if you can’t find, it just double up on the cheddar, or try another creamy cheese, like Gruyere or Swiss. You can use Gluten Free bread (I suggest Schar’s Deli Style Sourdough), or leave out the bacon to make this vegetarian.
