Bacon Guacamole Grilled Cheese

We had visitors! Again!  About a week ago John's parents came down to visit for a couple of days. This was just a few days after the visit from our McKinney friends. Visitors twice within a week!! How awesome is that? The folks arrived just in time for lunch - the BEST grilled cheese sandwiches ever!!

It is time once again for the Crazy Cooking Challenge! For those of you that are not familiar with it the CCC it is a monthly linky hosted by Tina at Mom's Crazy Cooking. Each month Tina selects a particular dish and all participating bloggers search other blogs trying find the perfect recipe to match the criteria for that month's dish. You then prepare and blog about the recipe making sure to provide a link to the blog you found the recipe at. Then all the recipes are posted and linked up at the same time on the seventh of each month. For more information click HERE.
This month's challenge was a grilled cheese sandwich. You would not believe all the amazing recipes I came across for grilled cheese: BLT grilled cheese; mushroom grilled cheese; pizza grilled cheese; roasted strawberry, brie and chocolate grilled cheese (oh my) and the list goes on and on. I already had many of these pinned including the one I decided on - the Bacon Guacamole Grilled Cheese. Although I'm not sure the roasted strawberry, brie and chocolate grilled cheese won't be on the menu in the not so distant future. Now for this recipe my father-in-law and I liked the sound of the pepper jack cheese used in the original recipe, my mother-in-law and husband thought Swiss cheese sounded better. So I used pepper jack on Johnny's and mine and Swiss on Pat's and John's. Neither of us was disappointed. Lots of cheese is what makes this recipe AWESOME!! And of course the bacon - bacon makes everything better right? And who doesn't LOVE guacamole? That combo makes this my new fav grilled cheese!! I found the recipe for this Bacon Guacamole Grilled Cheese Sandwich over at Mrs. Happy Homemaker. Give it a try - you won't be sorry you did!

For each sandwich you will need:

2 slices bread (we used Italian)
2 slices bacon, cooked crisp
4 slices of your fav cheese
2-3 Tbsp guacamole, room temperature

Butter one side of one of the slices of bread.
Place buttered side down in skillet.
Top with two of the cheese slices, guacamole, bacon and then the remaining two slices of cheese. Butter one side of second slice of bread and place on top of cheese, buttered side up. Cook over medium heat for about three minutes or until browned, flip and heat for an additional three minutes or until browned.
Serve and enjoy.
