a simple combination of ranch, cheddar and bacon, sandwiched between crisp, seared bread – utterly amazing!


  • 8 slices thick cut bread (I used Texas toast)
  • 8 slices of thick cut bacon
  • 1 (8 oz) block sharp cheddar
  • 1/4 c. ranch dressing
  • butter, for toasting bread


  1. Season your bacon with pepper (and a pinch of salt if desired) Cook the 8 slices of bacon on your griddle or skillet. Remove bacon to paper towels and let drain.
  2. Grate the block of cheddar cheese.
  3. Rip bacon into bite-sized pieces.
  4. In a medium bowl, mix torn bacon, grated cheese and ranch dressing.
  5. Divide mixture on top of 4 slices of bread. Make a sandwich by topping each with another slice of bread.
  6. Butter the top slice of bread and place in skillet/griddle butter side down (heated to medium-low). Immediately butter other side.
  7. Cook grilled cheese for 3-5 minutes on each side. Watch it carefully so that it doesn’t burn.
  8. Cut into triangles and serve hot with soup on the side.
