Pepperjack and Bacon Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Today marks the last day of April, which just happens to be National Grilled Cheese Month (yes, there's a month for everything).

When I read about April and that special month, I just knew Melissa and I had to come up with a delicious, easy recipe for a grilled cheese sandwich.

So when I thought about it, I realized that we should be simple and combine two of my favorite ingredients: pepperjack cheese and bacon. So we did.

We used real bacon, taken from a real pig, and that really made all the difference. We needed just two pieces per sandwich, and the crunch the bacon provided contrasted deliciously with the creamy, spicy pepperjack.

Had a fantastic variation of this sandwich at a local eatery recently -- brown sugared bacon with pepper jack cheese, tomato, and crisp lettuce. Honestly, I've never had such a good sammich in my life.
