Baked Potato Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Two of my favorites combined into one comfort food explosion. 
It was that good. 

What You'll Need:
(for one sandwich)
1/2 small potato
2 slices bacon
mild cheddar cheese
2 slices bread 
canola oil
salt and pepper
1 tbsp sour cream plus more for dipping
chopped green onions (optional)

What To Do:
Cook bacon to desired crispiness. Meanwhile, slice potato into thin rounds and season with salt and pepper. With enough oil to cover the bottom of the pan, cook potatoes over medium heat until browned and cooked through, about three minutes per side. Drain bacon and potatoes on paper towels and dab away excess oil. 

Butter the outside faces of your slices of bread and spread sour cream on the insides. Layer your sandwich with cheese, bacon and potatoes. Grill evenly on each side until the bread is toasted and brown and the cheese has melted. 

If you're having trouble getting the insides to cook without burning the bread, try this trick. Pour a couple of drops of water into the pan and quickly cover it with a lid, trapping steam inside. It will help to quickly melt your cheese! 

Slice diagonally, top with chopped green onions, and serve with sour cream. Enjoy!
