I’ve always had a love for local food, and it’s grown bigger over the last few years. Farmers Markets are stepping up their game and more local farm-to-table restaurants are opening their doors. The flavors that you can find right in your backyard or community can really bring a dish to life. Like the tomatoes and Applewood Smoked Bacon from the sponsor of this post, Farmland, that I use on my Breakfast Grilled Cheese.
Breakfast Grilled Cheese
I wouldn’t drop a delicious bomb, like Breakfast Grilled Cheese, without telling you how to make it. The best part is that you can make it two ways. Make it with bacon, or make it with sausage. Actually, you could make it three ways if you count making both, cutting them in half, and sharing with your spouse so you can enjoy both!
Are you a bacon person? You’ll love this Breakfast Grilled Cheese with Farmland Applewood Smoked Bacon. The flavor and sweetness of hand-trimmed bacon that is slow smoked over real Applewood chips mean maximum flavor for your Breakfast Grilled Cheese. Not to mention the Farmland headquarters is right here in the Midwest (it’s just a few hours away from me!), and they’ve worked with local farm families since 1959 to provide customers with food they can trust and feel good about. You can pick up these delicious Farmland products plus other local, fresh ingredients at Hy-Vee.
Are you a sausage person? Try your Breakfast Grilled Cheese with Farmland Hickory Smoked Sausage Rope. No, we’re not putting the whole rope on a sandwich, you will have to share some of that deliciousness. I do mean delicious because this savory sausage is smoked over real hardwood and includes no added hormones. Farm-to-table, Farmland Hickory Smoked Sausage Rope adds a smoky flavor to any meal, whether it’s used as an ingredient like this in our Breakfast Grilled Cheese, or served as the main course.

How to Make Breakfast Grilled Cheese
Breakfast Grilled Cheese Ingredients
- 1 Fried Egg
- 2 Slices Cheddar Cheese
- 2 Slices Texas Toast
- 3 Strips of Farmland Applewood Smoked Bacon OR Farmland Hickory Smoked Sausage
- Hash browns
- Fresh Sliced Tomato
First, start cooking the bacon or sausage in a pan. Once that is going, start cooking the hash browns. When the hash browns are done, remove them from the pan and begin frying the egg. Once the egg and the bacon or sausage are done, begin assembling the grilled cheese.
Butter one side of each piece of Texas toast and lay a piece of cheese on one side. Top the cheese with hash browns, fried egg, bacon or sausage, and a slice of tomato. Finish it off with another slice of cheese and the second piece of Texas toast.
Place the grilled cheese back in the heated pan and grill to perfection on both sides. When it’s all grilled up, remove it from the pan and cut in half. There you have it. A Breakfast Grilled Cheese that will have you looking forward to the morning!
