New Recipe Every Month of 2012: Beer Battered Bacon Grilled Cheese Sandwhiches
When I was on my little trip last week, I stopped at Sonic quite a few times. I love Sonic, but I never get to go except when I'm back home, because we have so few out here where we live in California. This is a tragedy made even worse by the frequent airings of all those dang Sonic commercials on TV.
On one of these Sonic trips, my niece, Cassie, introduced me to a little piece of heaven, BLT Grilled Cheese Sandwiches. They were AMAZING! So I decided for April, I would try to make my own, and I found an even better recipe on pinterest, Beer Battered Bacon Grilled Cheese Sandwiches
They were so delicious, I could have eaten a million (but alas, I stuck to one). Here is the recipe!
6 slices hickory-smoked bacon
4 slices rustic white bread
2 slices provolone cheese
2 slices Cheddar cheese
3/4 cup pale ale beer
1/4 cup All-Purpose Flour
1/4 teaspoon chipotle chili powder
1 tablespoon butter
Step One: In a skillet, cook bacon until crisp. Drain grease with paper towel
Step Two: Put together sandwhich with 2 slices of bread, 1 slice provolone cheese, 1 slice Cheddar cheese, and three slices of bacon.
Step Three: Heat griddle/skillet over medium-high heat. In a bowl, thoroughly combine egg, beer, flour, and chili with fork. Dip sandwhich in batter, a few seconds for each side. Drain excess batter back into bowl.
Step Four: Melt butter on griddle. Place sandwich on griddle. Cook on each side until golden brown and cheese is melty.
