The People Have Spoken: Grilled Cheese Is Better Than Sex.

I was split 50/50 over what I wanted to blog about today until I asked Twitter:
Clearly, the people have spoken.

It has been freezeballs in Texas the past few days,
and nothing says "Warm me up!" like a grilled cheese sandwich.

Right? Right.

When TJ asked what was for dinner last night and I replied with
"Grown Up Grilled Cheese",
he inquisitively asked "What is a grown up grilled cheese?"

My answer:

"It's a grilled cheese sandwich. For grown ups. Duh."

Sourdough Bread
Crispy Bacon
Salted Butter
Gouda and Sharp Cheddar Cheese
Avocado, mashed and mixed with salt, pepper and garlic powder

And, for the sake of allowing me to try out my new camera, in case you don't know how to make a grilled cheese sandwich, I am here to help you:
1. Spread softened butter on one side of bread and mashed avocado on the other side

2. Assemble cheese and cooked bacon on top of the avocado

3.  Place sandwich butter side down on a skillet over medium heat - cook 3 minutes

4. Using a spatula, flip that sucker over and cook for another 3 minutes

5. Slice down the center with a knife to ensure that the cheesy goodness has melted

6.  Devour. I suggest tomato soup on the side.
Today, in place of the bacon and avocado I used shaved buffalo chicken and blue cheese, and added spinach and Franks Red Hot. It was amazeballs.
Do you use a special bread, cheese or other add-on for your grilled cheese?
