Potato Chip Grilled Cheese (of course bacon is optional)


2 pieces of bread 

3 slices of American Cheese
thinly sliced pickle slices, dabbed dry
1 thin slice of tomato
Good handful of potato chips (Ridged chips work best)
tablespoon of butter


(Assemble bottom to top: bread, cheese 1, pickles, tomato, cheese 2, chips, cheese 3, bread)

Heat 1/2 tablespoon of butter in a pan over medium heat, once bubbling carefully add your sandwich.

Lightly press the sandwich down with a spatula or here I used a pot lid just to apply a little pressure to the sandwich.

After about 3-4 minutes, lift sandwich up, add the other 1/2 tablespoon of butter and flip the sandwich to grill the other side. (At this point you may want to turn the heat to don't want the sandwich to cook too quickly because you need the cheese to melt...)

Again, apply light pressure to the sandwich.

After another 3-4 minutes or so, turn off the heat. (If cheese still isn't totally melted, allow the sandwich to sit in the pan covered for a few more minutes.)

Slice with a serrated knife and enjoy
