Bacon-Pretzel Grilled Cheese

Bacon Pretzel Grilled Cheese
Happy New Year everyone!! No one’s on a diet are they? Or wait…a healthier eating plan? Just eat smaller portions and eat what you love…you’ll do great! I promise.

I had these frozen pretzels in my freezer, the typical ones you find in your grocer’s frozen aisle. I felt these needed a better plan than the whole just “dipping into mustard” scenario.

I let the pretzels thaw out and sliced them in half with my bread knife. I precooked my bacon in the oven and layered it on the bottom half of the pretzel slices. I topped the bacon with Havarti cheese slices, but you can choose any kind of cheese you like. Then popped them in a nonstick skillet with a little butter to melt the cheese and warm the bacon through.

Simple and exquisite. And no one will complain when you pull out a tray of these.

    This looks divine. But I saw something the other day that struck me as I thought about this but had not tried yet. I make my own pastrami and wondered about using pork. Some restaurant has and I think the pork pastrami would be perfect for these pretzel buns.
