How to make it

To make this cheesy spin on a classic BLT, start by cooking the bacon. I recommend following this guide for how to cook bacon in the oven. Layer it onto buttered bread with shredded gruyere cheese, spinach, tomatoes and avocado.

Cook the grilled cheese sandwich in a large skillet or on a griddle for 3-4 minutes per side, or until golden brown. Serve immediately for ultimate cheesy goodness!
