Jalapeño Blackberry Bacon Grilled Cheese

Outstanding flavor to take grilled cheese night to the next level.
Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time15 mins
Course: Lunch, Main Course
Cuisine: American
Servings: 4 sandwiches


  • 1 loaf sourdough bread the good stuff
  • 4 slices bacon cooked
  • 8 slices Swiss cheese or cheese of your choice
  • 3-4 jalapeños seeded and sliced
  • ½ C blackberry jam more or less to taste


  • Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil. Place raw bacon on top of foil and bake for 12-15 minutes until desired crispness. Set aside.
  • Slice up the jalapeño how you like it. Set aside.
  • Slice the sourdough bread into moderately thick slices. Spread a good amount (2 Tbsp+) of blackberry jam on each slice.
  • Build each sandwich with bacon, cheese and jalapeño on the blackberry-laden sourdough bread.
  • Preheat a skillet or electric griddle to medium/high heat (about 325°F). Place sandwiches buttered side down and toast until a medium golden brown. While cooking, add a good amount of butter to the top side of the bread.
  • Flip and cook the other side until a beautifully crisp and light brown. If the bread is toasting too quickly before the cheese melts, lower the temperature and allow the cheese to fully melt.
  • Slice on the diagonal for that optimal first bite. And enjoy!
