I felt inspired to make dinner for my gentleman the other day, especially after I found this recipe on Pinterest. Oh my goodness. It's gluttonous and cheesy and buttery and it doesn't even matter. I put bacon on his but not on mine. I used Sam Adams Boston Lager because I didn't have any lighter beer available. It worked beautifully and was very tasty. I wouldn't make it again because omg so unhealthy, but it was fun!
Beer Battered Grilled Cheese Sandwiches
Key Ingredient via Pinterest
6 slices hickory-smoked bacon
4 slices rustic white bread
2 slices provolone cheese (¾ oz each)
2 slices Cheddar cheese (¾ oz each)
¾ cup pale ale beer
¼ cup all-purpose flour
¼ teaspoon chipotle chili powder
1 tablespoon butter
1. In 12-inch nonstick skillet, cook bacon until crisp; drain on paper towel.
2. On 2 of the bread slices, place 1 slice provolone cheese, 3 slices bacon and 1 slice Cheddar cheese on each. Top with remaining bread slices.
3. Heat griddle or skillet over medium-high heat or to 375°F. In shallow bowl, beat egg, beer, flour and chili powder with fork until smooth. Dip each sandwich into batter, giving it a few seconds on each side to absorb the batter; drain excess batter back into bowl.
4. Melt butter on hot griddle. Place sandwiches on griddle. Cook 3 to 4 minutes on each side until golden brown.
