With a relatively even balance of carbs, protein and fat, about half of the fat in this bacon-goat cheese-grilled cheese is from plant-based oils.
Goat Cheese Bacon Grilled Cheese
Makes 1 serving
- 2 slices Nature’s Own 100% Whole Grain Bread
- 2 teaspoons coconut oil or Earth Balance butter
- 1 teaspoon fig preserves
- 1 ounce goat cheese
- 1 slice nitrite-free center-cut bacon
Spread coconut oil on one side of each slice of bread. On the dry sides of bread, spread on fig preserve and goat cheese. Add already cooked bacon and combine to make a sandwich.
On a hot skillet or fry pan, place sandwich, coconut oil side down, and cook with a lid for 3-4 minutes or until golden and cheese starts to melt. Flip sandwich over and cook for additional 2-3 minutes until golden and cheese has melted. Cut in half and enjoy.
