Blackberry & Bacon Grilled Cheese

Happy National Grilled Cheese Day! The are 81+ grilled cheese recipes on Vegetarian & Cooking! if this sandwich doesn't seem like the perfect grilled cheese for you to celebrate National Grilled Cheese Day.

I love using Morning Star's vegetarian bacon, this would also be good with coconut bacon (or regular bacon if you would like to make the sandwich non-vegetarian). The combination of salty, sweet, and spicy is delightful. Dave and I each ate a sandwich and a half and were wanting more. This would be good with any jam that isn't too sweet, elderberry jam is coming to mind as one that still has a little pucker to it while maintaining some sweetness.

Adapted from Lemon Tree Dwelling.

-1/2 tablespoon Miracle Whip (or mayo)
-6 pieces bread of your choice (I used a multigrain bread)
-3/4 cup shredded swiss cheese
-6 pieces Morning Star veggie bacon, cooked
-Pickled jalapeno slices
-3 tablespoons blackberry jam

Lightly spread Miracle Whip on one side of three pieces of bread and place the bread Miracle Whip side down in a skillet.

Top each piece with swiss cheese, pickled jalapeno slices, and the veggie bacon. Add more swiss cheese on top. Spread the blackberry jam onto the remaining three pieces of bread and place the bread jam side down on top of the sandwiches that are in the pan.

Spread the remaining Miracle Whip on the top of the sandwiches. Grill over medium heat until each side is golden brown. If you use your hand to steady the sandwich, you should be able to flip the sandwich without losing any of the filling.
