Grilled Breakfast Sandwich

I'm kind of a traditional breakfast kind of guy. Eggs, hash browns, toast, sometimes biscuits, occasionally some grits, or pancakes or waffles.

Every once in a while though, I like something a little bit different. Try my grilled breakfast sandwich sometime, you might like it. And obviously there are untold varieties of additions you could make in accordance with your tastes.

Here's my version:
two slices potato bread
two slices bacon
a touch of mayo
scrambled egg (1 or 2)
sharp Tillamook cheddar cheese
butter for frying and buttering bread

Fry bacon in pan until crisp. Remove bacon fat. Scramble the egg(s) to a soft scramble in butter. Remove from pan.

Butter one side of each slice of bread. On the unbuttered side of one spread with a touch of mayonnaise. Sprinkle with shredded cheddar cheese. Place egg on cheese, sprinkle with chives, add two slices of bacon, another light layer of shredded cheddar cheese and top with second slice of bread, butter side up.

Grill sandwich like a grilled cheese sandwich in the pan. Slice and serve immediately.
I make many variations to this, sometimes sausage, sometimes thinly sliced ham, etc. Other things you might use are tomatoes, mushrooms, green onions, tabasco, salsa, etc. Make up your own recipe.

We maks something very similar but it's a savory stuffed French Toast sandwich. I think we will be making this one.
