People of Boston please help me. Where can you get a great grilled cheese with bacon?
Like the job UHub is doing? Consider a contribution. Thanks!
Some answers via Twitter
Because it's possible there isn't anything on the planet that's easier to cook.
If you are at work, that's out. But, hey, that's why Roxy's exists!
I don't even make them at home - I just ask one of my offspring to make dinner and make sure to have kerrygold butter, thick bacon and some of that trader joe's cheddar gruyere stuff on hand.
All you need is a frying pan,
All you need is a frying pan, bacon, butter, bread, cheese. I can't cook but even I could manage this. Add some sliced tomatoes. I can't have cheese anymore (cholesterol) but I have fond memories of this stuff.
Heck, just an iron and some foil
My grandfather taught me that trick. Although a George Foreman Grill is safer.
Taught me to add in a slice of the onion he tied to his belt.
Yeah, and my grandfather probably did tie an onion to his belt. Saw it in that Rodale magazine! I'm sure it has many uses, including furniture polishing and relief from rheumatism and the gonic!
"Now where were we... oh yeah."
"The important thing was that I had an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time. I didn't have any white onions, because of the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones...."
cleanup on aisle three, please
butter is optional
You don't even need butter if there's enough fat left over from frying the bacon.
Butter is not optional, my friend
Not on my grillies.
Added bacon fat is cool and maybe less butter, but...
No way omit it completely. Butter is a critical ingredient.
Have you considered trying
Have you considered trying almond cheese? Trader Joes has a great shredded variety. It does not pack the same flavor as cheese but has its own distinct and pleasant flavor, plus you can toss in some other things to add flavor (chives for instance.) The package says 0 cholesterol and Fooducate gives it a B which puts it nutritional above many of the cheeses on the market. Some of the low moisture and low fat mozerallas score better but they don't melt like the almond cheese does.
I just designed a mad good bacon cheesey that I'm munching on right now. Yummy!
Gee what a helpful suggestion
Presumably the original poster, who is intelligent enough to operate a computer, knows that it is possible to make a grilled cheese and bacon sandwich at home.
But maybe he's not at home.
Or maybe he doesn't want to deal with the mess cooking two slices of bacon just to make a sandwich. That basically doubles (at least) the amount of work it takes to make a grilled cheese sans bacon.
Or maybe you, zz, should just answer the question or STFU.
allston: hub of grilled cheese universe
Roxy's, yes, of course. But if you're feeling nostalgic & just want american or cheddar on squishy white bread, with enough butter to coat your fingers, Steve's on Harvard Avenue will hook you up.
Cheese whiz, bacon bits and
Cheese whiz, bacon bits and toast. Done.
I'd scarf that if I were stoned
But under no circumstances would I call it a grilled cheese sandwich.
It's INSANE to buy a grilled cheese and bacon. What's the cost to make at home? 50 cents? You pay 10 time that at Cheeseboy.
it is unwise
to judge a restaurants menu on whether it can be made for cheaper at home
I can make many interesting recipes at home
Sometimes I want someone else to cook. Sometimes my time is worth a lot more than paying someone else to do the cooking.
Then there's that bit about not having a stove at work. (and microwaving a grilled cheese isn't going to work)
Seapoint in Southie has the
Seapoint in Southie has the best grilled cheese!
Shays in Harvard Square used
Shays in Harvard Square used to d a fantastic one, but I haven't had one in a long time so I can't vouch for the current quality; the Deluxe Town Diner on Mt. Auburn St. in Watertown will totally hook you up, though, and even put avocado in if you want.
...still does a fantastic grilled cheese with bacon on regular or pumpernickel and the pickle wedge is delicious and their "fries" are hand cut and baked not fried.
in Southie. If you really want the subsequent nap to feel even more glorious get a tuna melt (on wheat bread cuz clearly being health conscious is important) with bacon; it's a legendary combination.
Everything is great at Rondo
Everything is great at Rondo's including the service.
Quincy Market has a good grilled cheese place, on the end toward the water. Can't remember its name.
