Recipe courtesy of Williams-Sonoma


  • 8 slices country-style white bread, each 1/2 inch thick
  • 4 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/4 pound low-fat cheddar cheese, thinly sliced
  • 8 bacon slices, cooked
  • 1/4 pound low-fat Monterey Jack cheese, thinly sliced


  • 1 Brush one side of each bread slice with 1/2 teaspoon olive oil. Lay half the slices, oiled side down, on a clean work surface and top with the cheddar cheese, dividing evenly. Place 2 bacon slices on top of the cheddar and top with the Monterey jack, dividing evenly. Top each with one of the remaining bread slices, oiled side up.
  • 2 Heat a large fry pan or griddle over medium heat until hot. Place 2 of the sandwiches in the pan, reduce the heat to medium-low and cook until the undersides are golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip the sandwiches and brown the other side, 3 to 4 minutes more. Repeat with the remaining sandwiches.
  • 3 Transfer the sandwiches to a cutting board and cut in half. Serve immediately.
