Baked Potato Grilled Cheese – Crazy Cooking Challenge #9

Yes, you read that title right…a baked potato grilled cheese sandwich. Seriously. This month’s Crazy Cooking Challenge was Grilled Cheese Sandwich, and I found this beauty over on BS’in in the Kitchen. I am in love with this blog, which is written by a brother/sister duo. I’ve bookmarked several other recipes I cannot wait to try!

Let’s talk about this fabulous sandwich. It might sound a little weird, especially if you are a grilled cheese purist. Sour cream, potatoes, bacon, green onion, and cheddar cheese all combined on some yummy bread and grilled to melty, cheese perfection, and it was amazing. The husband ate two of them, and I would have had I not started watching what I eat just a few days prior. Even the tiny man stole a few bites and loved it. As is the norm in this house, we both customized our sandwiches to meet our respective likes and dislikes. I omitted the green onions (as I normally do when I have a baked potato), and the husband omitted the sour cream and added hot peppers (as he normally does when he has a baked potato). If you love loaded baked potoatoes, I highly reccmmend giving this sandwich a try!

Baked Potato Grilled Cheese Sandwich

2-3 Strips of Bacon
1 Potato
2 tbsp of Sour Cream
Cheddar Cheese
Green Onions/Chives
2 Slices of Bread
Butter
Canola Oil
Garlic Powder
Salt & Pepper

To start things off, get a pan on medium heat with enough canola oil to lightly cover the bottom (you could also use olive oil or butter). Cut your potato into even slices, you will need 4-5 slices for the sandwich, then place them in your pan, cooking each side until browned and crispy.

While cooking, salt and pepper the potatoes to taste (they don’t have to be too salty as the bacon with help with the saltiness as well) and sprinkle a light pinch of garlic powder. In another pan cook your bacon on medium heat to desired tenderness (I liked mine crispy for this sandwich!).

While everything is cooking, slice your bread (use some crusty bread like french or sourdough if you have it), and generously butter the outside of each piece. On the inside, put about 1 tablespoon of sour cream on each slice as well as slices of cheddar cheese on each side. Once your potatoes and bacon are finished frying, dab them on paper towel to remove some grease, then fan the potatoes out on your bottom slice of bread, put a little more sour cream on top of the potatoes if you desire (I did to help the bacon and chives stick in the sandwich). Slice up one green onion stalk and spread it on top of the potatoes along with the bacon. Place your other slice of cheese on top of all of this and top with your bread!

Now just grill the sandwich in a pan on medium heat until each side becomes golden brown.

    Seriously? Potatoes on grilled cheese? I am a potato-aholic and am just about crazy enough to try this … it might rank up there with the mashed potato pizza I am so in love with …
