Grilled Bacon and Fontina Sandwich

Sharing is caring!

This weekend was a busy one. We celebrated our son’s birthday, went to a high school reunion (my husband’s), and hosted our annual Fantasy Football draft party. A lot of fun times and a lot of good eating too!  We are enjoying these last few weeks of summer and although I am not quite ready for it to end, I am excited about enjoying pumpkin and apple flavors in the months to come.

With the final week of bacon month here, I am sharing a tasty Grilled Bacon and Fontina sandwich today.



I have shared a version of this recipe before, but it is such a tasty recipe, I wanted to share it with my new readers. It is really good, especially with a hot bowl of soup or chili. The crispy bread and bacon are complemented with arugula and melted Fontina cheese. Definitely worth repeating.

It certainly looks like you cook your bacon very well! And I read today that arugula was one of those life-saving types of vegetables.
