 Now what would you eat if you could eat anything you want? Well, it’s National Eat What You Want Day, so calories don’t count – right?!  So what would you choose? Ummm, maybe No-Churn Death by Chocolate Ice Cream, or maybe Key Lime Pie, ummm nope, I think right now, if it was me, I’d go for this extra cheesy delicious grilled cheese sandwich. And the one that I’d want on my plate would be my moms. She honestly made one of the best grilled cheese sandwiches you’ll ever taste!

This sandwich is high on flavor with a roasted garlic clove seasoning the toasted bread, crisp smoky bacon and three delicious cheeses piled high in the center. Why three? Well, the Gruyere cheese melts beautifully and brings a subtle, sophisticated taste to the sandwich while the fontina adds a buttery, nutty flavor to the mix. Add in the sharpness of the Pecorino Romano or, if you like, Parmesan, and you have a sandwich fit for a gourmand.

And it’s really simple to make, the hardest part being shredding the cheeses. Easy, right? After that it’s just a matter of piling it on the bread and watching it melt into a gloriously rich “I can’t wait any longer” to eat it lunch. I mean, really, you can’t go wrong with this grilled cheese sandwich! So what are you waiting for – go make it right now and dig in! Yum!
