  • Really good bread I prefer a sturdy sour dough with thicker than average slices
  • Crispy bacon it absolutely needs to be crispy otherwise you run the risk of yanking the whole rubbery slice out with your first bite.  And that's basically criminal.
  • Thin sliced tomatoes if they're too thick you'll end up with a gloopy tomato seedy mess.
  • American cheese classic. Please don't deviate.
  • Butter the real stuff.


  • Slather the outside of each slice of bread with butter.  Be generous.
  • Cover the unbuttered side of each slice with cheese.  Yes, both slices get cheese.
  • On one slice place bacon, and on the other slice place tomato.  Carefully put slices together, buttered sides facing out.
  • Cook on a medium heat skillet, turning frequently for even browning, until toasted to your liking.
  • Enjoy with a piping hot cup of soup!
