The Ultimate Grilled Cheese and Bacon Sandwich

Ultimate Grilled Cheese and Bacon Sandwich Recipe


  • 1 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 medium onion, halved & thinly sliced
  • 1 ½ tsp. Slap Ya Mama Low Sodium Blend Seasoning
  • 8 slices thick cut bacon, cut in half
  • 3 Tbsp. mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp. Slap Ya Mama Cajun Pepper Sauce
  • 8 slices sharp cheddar cheese
  • 4 slices sour dough bread, slices no thicker than a ½ inch
  • 4 Tbsp. butter, softened or spreadable


  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, melt 1 Tbsp of butter. Add onions and 1 tsp of Slap Ya Mama Low Sodium Blend Seasoning.
  2. Stirring consistently, sauté onions until they are golden brown and soft. Remove from pan and set aside on a plate.
  3. Using the same skillet, fry the bacon until crispy. Remove from pan and set aside on a paper towel covered plate to let drain.
  4. In a bowl, combine mayonnaise, Slap Ya Mama Cajun Pepper Sauce and ½ tsp of Slap Ya Mama Low Sodium Blend Seasoning.
  5. Mix well and set aside.
  6. Sandwich Assembly:
  7. Spread mayo mixture on the inside of each slice of bread.
  8. Working from the bottom slice up, add 4 pieces of bacon, 2 slices of cheese, onions, 4 pieces of bacon, 2 more slices of cheese and top with a slice of bread.
  9. Using softened butter, spread 1 Tbsp of butter on the outside of the top slice of bread.
  10. In a skillet over medium-low heat, place sandwich butter side down.
  11. Butter the top side of the sandwich with another 1 Tbsp and continue grilling sandwich on both sides until the bread is golden brown and the inside of the sandwich is ooey gooey with melted cheese.
  12. Using a sharp serrated knife, cut sandwich in half and enjoy.

NOTE: This recipe will make 2 large grilled cheese sandwiches due to the fact that we used larger than normal slices of bread. If using regular sized slices of bread, this recipe may make 4 sandwiches total.
