What is a girl to do when she looks in her fridge, only to find herself staring at a loaf of Paleo bread, horseradish cheese, bacon, and broccoli? These were the contents of my fridge (and a large jar of awesome lard that I got at the Bloomington farmers market). This girl decided to make grilled cheese. It’s been on my mind for a long time. At work I serve out baked potato grilled cheese on the daily. But I wanted something gluten-free. Something a little outside the box. And frankly I tasted a sliver of the horseradish cheese on it’s own and it was completely overwhelming to me. Not my style. I figured if I added the broccoli with the bacon it would cut the flavor a bit. Melting it, actually made it a lot better in taste too. So here it is, my first grilled cheese experimentation!
Brit’s Broccoli Bacon Horseradish Grilled Cheese
- 2 slices of Paleo Bread (whatever your favorite recipe)
- Thinly sliced horseradish cheese
- 3 slices of bacon
- Broccoli florets (enough to cover the top)
Let’s Make it Happen: I started by crisping up my bacon, which I cut in half first. I added the bacon into the mix. Letting it get nice and tender, yet still a little crunchy for some added texture. I then sliced the bread. Cut thin strips of cheese and covered one slice of bread. I heated some coconut oil in a skillet. Added the cheese covered slice and covered it. Once it was beginning to melt, I added the bacon and broccoli. Slap on another piece of toast. Flip that puppy over. Let it melt completely, plate and eat! It’s that easy 🙂
