This robust revision of an all-American lunch classic gets heartiness from bacon and extra flavor from onion, sour cream and oregano.—Nita Crosby, St. George, Utah

Ingredients

  • 8 slices sourdough bread
  • 4 slices part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 2 large tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • 8 bacon strips, cooked
  • 4 tablespoons sour cream
  • 4 tablespoons finely chopped onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 4 slices cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened

Directions

  1. Place mozzarella cheese on four bread slices; layer each with a fourth of the tomato slices, two bacon strips, 1 tablespoon sour cream, 1 tablespoon onion, a pinch of oregano, one slice of cheddar cheese. Top with remaining bread.
  2. Butter outsides of sandwiches. In a small skillet over medium heat, toast sandwiches for 3-4 minutes on each side or until cheese is melted.
