I just sent out a newsletter to readers who have signed up on the mailing list on my website. For those of you who received the newsletter, I apologize for a second posting of this recipe, but it got a lot of email response, so I wanted to share it with our MLK readers.
BACON CHEDDAR GUACAMOLE GRILLED CHEESE
or The Mark Twain Special
4 strips of bacon, cooked crisply
4 ounces Cheddar cheese
2 ounces Unie Kaas Robusto (or other cow milk cheese)
Guacamole (recipe to follow)
4 slices bread
2 tablespoons butter
Cook the bacon as crisply as you prefer. Drain on paper towels.
Prepare the guacamole (according to recipe).
Butter the bread on one side. Heat a griddle on medium. Lay all four pieces of bread on the griddle, butter-side down. Layer with cheese and guacamole on one side and cheese and bacon on the other.
Cook the half-sandwiches until the cheese melts. Stack the two sides together and cover with a
lid or piece of foil to finish the melting process.
Serve warm and enjoy.
*Note: Because of the guacamole, this is a hard sandwich to slice. Prepare to get messy.
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon sour cream
Dash of white pepper
Dash of Worcestershire sauce
A trick for peeling the avocado. Slice in half, remove pit. Using a spoon, scoop out the contents.
Put avocado and other ingredients in a bowl. Whip together. Cover tightly to prevent air from getting to the guacamole until you are ready to use.
