Ingredients
  • 40 strips thick-cut bacon
  • 5 cups grated sharp artisanal Cheddar, such as Tillamook
  • 20 slices pumpernickel
  • 5 Honeycrisp apples, thinly sliced
  • 5 cups arugula
  • 1 stick butter, at room temperature
Directions
  • Preheat a griddle over medium-high heat.

  • Lay the bacon strips on the griddle. Cook the bacon until browned and crisp. Drain the bacon on paper towels and reserve the bacon fat.

  • To build your grilled cheese, place 1/4 cup of the cheese on the bottom of a slice of bread. Top with 2 slices bacon, 4 slices apple, some arugula, 1/4 cup more of the cheese and another slice of bread. Repeat with the remaining ingredients.

  • Spread each side of the sandwich with some of the butter. Griddle until the bread is toasted, golden brown and delicious, 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Cut each sandwich into 4 pieces and serve.
