Bacon Sun Dried Tomato Grilled Cheese

I love love love loooooove sandwiches, especially grilled sandwiches, so when the Mom's Crazy Cooking Challenge for May was announced: grilled cheese sandwiches, I was so excited. I can't wait to see all the recipes linked up and try some out myself. I found this recipe from Galley Kitchen and knew I had to try it out for two reasons.

1. Bacon - We have had a long standing affair since I was little.My dad introduced us. Bacon always wins and makes everything better. Try and convince me otherwise.

2. Sun Dried Tomatoes - Similar to bacon, when looking at a menu, as soon as I read something has sun dried tomatoes in it, I'm sold. Done. Costco sized jar love.

So, here we go.

Before I share the simple ingredients (I'm sure you can guess) needed for this tasty sandwich, I have to share the hilarious description Suzzana (of Galley Kitchen) used to describe her sandwich:
It tasted like a bright, fresh caprese salad got loaded on tequila and cheese fries, and woke up in a strange apartment, unsure of just who was posting true confessions on her Facebook wall all night long. It was delicious, and a little embarrassing.
 How could you not try this out?

2 slices bread, your choice
cheese, however much your little heart desires
sun dried tomatoes, again, to your preference
1/2 teaspoon garlic, roasted
1 Tablespoon butter

Now you're ready to rock and roll. It's quick and easy.

Cook your bacon to preferred crispy-ness. Butter two slices of bread on the outside.

Roast garlic on your stove top, or in your oven like Suzzana did. Then, spread across one slice (opposite the butter side) of your bread. [As I'm writing this, I just thought how yummy it would be to mash up a little avocado onto the bread, too. Next time!]

Add your cheese, layering your slices of bacon and sun dried tomatoes, as desired.

Grill it up til cheese melts and the bread is a nice golden color on the outside.

I love the cheese oozing out the side. Mmmmm.

Serve warm with a cup of soup always seems to be such a good combination. Or a side of extra bacon, as was my case.
