The Ultimate BLT Grilled Cheese - seven layers of ingredients piled high and grilled until the cheese is warm and melty!


For the chipotle mayo:

  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 chopped chipotle chili in adobo sauce

For the sandwich:

  • 4 slices bacon (use up to 6 slices)
  • 4 slices loaf bread
  • 1/4 cup loose leaf lettuce
  • 4 slices red onion
  • 4 slices tomato
  • 2 slices sharp cheddar cheese
  • 4 tablespoons guacamole
  • 2 tablespoons butter room temperature


To make the mayo:

  1. In a food processor combine chipotle chili and mayonnaise. Pulse until smooth; set aside.

For the sandwich:

  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add bacon and cook until crispy, about 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside on paper towel-lined plate.
  2. Heat a clean pan over medium heat. Butter one side of each slice of bread. Spread a layer of chipotle mayo over each slice of bread. Layer the lettuce, onion, tomato, cheese and guacamole over 2 slices of bread, dividing ingredients evenly. Top with remaining bread slices.
  3. Grill over medium heat until golden brown and the cheese has melted, about 2 to 3 minutes per side.


  • Use gluten free bread to make it gluten free.
