I’m pretty sure at this point in our relationship we both understand I love cheese. When I was a little kid I used to always shrug off cheese as if it were nothing of great importance. Then I grew up and realized what a foolish kid I was. Who shrugs off cheese? Who doesn’t want to bask in all it’s cheesy goodness?

Luckily as an adult I realize my child ways were in fact, childish, and I’m now on the path to cheese heaven.

Now, this grilled cheese is not just your run-of-the-mill grilled cheese. This grilled cheese is perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner. That’s right – breakfast. It’s packed full of Jones Dairy Farm Canadian bacon, fresh tomato slices, arugula and melty cheddar cheese.

Instead of using butter for the outside of the bread I used mayonnaise. It was a little trick my grandmother taught me and it tastes ahhhhhhmazing! I know that not everyone out there is a mayo lover but I still highly recommend it. Plus it’s a nice little nod to the classic BLT.

    I am a big fan of the mayo approach to grilled cheese (although my husband pretty much has to leave the kitchen when he sees me “buttering” the grilled cheese bread with mayo!). Love the spicy arugula addition to the other yums in this sandwich. 🙂

    As a Canadian, I could never bring myself to like our bacon. My dad LOVES the stuff. My daughter had the opportunity to try it and turned her nose up at it, lol. Maybe she needs to try it on this grilled cheese instead!

    I haven’t had Canadian bacon in ages! This grilled cheese really has me craving it, though (and I’ve never craved it before so that means something ;))

    I will happily have this for breakfast! I keep hearing the mayo trick but I still don’t know if I can break away from my love of the buttery bread on my grilled cheese.
