  • Spread 2 slices of the bread with 1 Tbs. each of the preserves, and top with the bacon and cheese. Top with the remaining slices of bread. Return 1-1/2 Tbs. of the bacon drippings to the pan, and set over medium heat. Arrange the sandwiches in the skillet.
  • Cook until the bottom slices of bread are golden brown, about 3 minutes. Flip, add another 1 to 1-1/2 Tbs. of drippings to the pan, and cook until the bread is golden and the cheese has melted, about 2 minutes. Slice in half, and serve.

    This recipe becomes a 5 when you use butter to fry it in. You can also use honey instead of blackberry preserves. I have also used, "breakfast bread" which has cranberries, honey, and lots of seeds in it. No sides needed.

    I'm making this for my family for the second time tonight. It's not healthy, but boy is is delicious! My kids love it. I'm serving it with roasted potatoes on the side.
