Sun dried tomatoes, arugula, mozzarella and Parmesan cheese make this BLT recipe so much more than the ones that you grab at your local sandwich shop!

Serves: 2
Ingredients
  • 4 slices sourdough bread, sliced ¼" thick
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 8 thin slices mozzarella cheese
  • 4 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 4 slices good quality, thick bacon
  • 6 sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil, chopped
  • Small handful arugula
Instructions
  1. Spread ½" tablespoon of butter on each slice of bread, making sure to go all the way to the edges.
  2. Place the bread, butter side down, and lay two slices of the mozzarella on the bottom.
  3. Top the mozzarella with one tablespoon of Parmesan cheese, then the sun-dried tomatoes, dividing them evenly over both sandwiches.
  4. Add a small handful of arugula on top of the tomatoes, followed by two slices of bacon on each sandwich.
  5. Sprinkle the remaining Parmesan cheese on top of the bacon followed by two more slices of mozzarella.
  6. Place a 12" skillet on the stove over medium heat.
  7. When the pan is hot, carefully lay both sandwiches in the pan.
  8. If desired, you can press the sandwich, but this is completely optional. ** see note below
  9. Cook for two minutes and then rotate the sandwiches (don't flip them yet). Rotating them just helps them evenly brown. Grill for another two minutes or until the bottom is browned.
  10. Carefully flip the sandwich over and grill for an additional 3 to 4 minutes or until the cheese is thoroughly melted and the bottom side is nicely browned.
  11. Serve immediately!
Notes
To press the sandwich: Choose a pot big enough to cover both sandwiches and put a piece of wax or Parchment paper between the sandwich and the pot. Then fill the pot with water, adding enough to press the sandwich but not completely smash it. This works great for sandwiches that are more "sturdy". If using regular bread, you wouldn't want to do this, or it would completely flatten it
