Grilled Cheese Sammie with Onion Bacon Jam

Bacon onion jam sandwiched between slices of American processed cheese on sourdough bread and grilled—we couldn’t shovel them into our mouths fast enough. The onion bacon jam just takes an ordinary grilled cheese into a totally different realm of yum! Can you tell we loved them?

Grilled cheese sandwiches always remind my hubby of his childhood.  They were his favorite lunch. And somethings haven’t changed much.

These sandwiches are pretty filling by themselves but if you’re still hungry they go deliciously with roasted tomato soup.  Mmm Mmm Mmm

Grilled Cheese Sammie with Onion Bacon Jam


  • 2 slices sourdough bread
  • 6 slices of American Processed Cheese
  • Onion Bacon Jam (to taste, I covered the entire slice thickly with it)
  • 4 pats of Butter


  • Butter the one side only of each slice of bread
  • Add 3 slices of cheese on the un-buttered side
  • Cover with Onion Bacon Jam to taste. I love it so I used a thick layer of it over the entire sandwich.
  • Add the last 3 pieces of American Processed Cheese over top of the Onion Bacon Jam
  • Top with second slice of buttered bread--buttered side up
  • Place the sandwich buttered side down, in a non-stick or cast iron fry pan over medium-high heat. Cover with a lid and let cook for 3-4 minutes or until golden.
  • Reduce heat to medium and gently flip sandwich to the other side and cook for 2-3 minutes or until bread is toasty, golden brown and the cheese has melted. The second side will cook faster than the first so be careful.
  • If you want to make more grilled cheese sandwiches just increase the the ingredients accordingly and repeat the process. Serve while they're hot.


The sourdough loaf I used was quite wide so you might want to adjust the amount of cheese slices depending on the size of sourdough slice you use.
