Sometimes it’s nice to wake up and eat some fresh fruit and a light yogurt….but sometimes its even nicer to wake up and eat an Extra Cheesy Bacon and Egg Grilled Cheese! lol. This grilled cheese is an extra hearty gut buster, but sometimes it’s really necessary to indulge just a little bit. I love the fluffy baked egg omelet in this sandwich. It pairs really well with the salty, crispy bacon, the stringy melted cheese, and the buttery toasted sourdough. It’s a perfect weekend breakfast for when you want to treat yourself. :) Enjoy! xx, Jenny
