Course Grilled Cheese Sandwich
Servings 1


  • 2 slices of bacon
  • 1/2 small russet potato
  • 1/2 tbsp flour
  • Onion powder
  • Garlic powder
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 heaping cup of shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 tbsp chives/green onion optional
  • 2 slices french bread
  • Butter
  • Salt & pepper


  • Place bacon in a pan, turn on heat to medium.
  • While bacon is frying, shred your potato, place between paper towel, pressing out moisture, placing between another fresh sheet of paper towel, until most moisture is removed.
  • Add about 1/2 a tablespoon flour, salt, pepper, a sprinkle of onion power, and a pinch of garlic powder. Mix into potato, form into patty.
  • Flip your bacon, move to the side of the pan, add hashbrown patty to the center of the pan.
  • While the bacon and hashbrown cook, slice your bread, buttering each outer side.
  • Shred a heaping 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese.
  • Once bacon is fried to your desired crispness, remove from pan, place on paper towel. Continue cooking hashbrown until browned on both sides.
  • Begin building your sandwich, placing some cheese on the bottom slice, chopped green onion, bacon, then your hashbrown.
  • Add some butter to your pan, add egg, salt & pepper to taste, and cover with lid, cooking until white film forms over your egg yolk.
  • Add bottom half of your grilled cheese to pan, add egg on top of hashbrown, topping with the rest of your cheese.
  • Once bottom slice has browned, gently place top slice on your sandwich, carefully flipping sandwich (trying not to break egg yolk).
  • Cook until bread is browned, remove from pan, slice in half, and serve!
