The combination of cheddar and fontina cheeses creates a rich, sharp and nutty flavor that would be great on its own, but this sandwich kicks it up a notch with two more flavor-packed ingredients. You can never go wrong with bacon, and adding some kimchi helps to cut through the richness of the sandwich while giving it a bit of heat.



  1. In a bowl, combine both cheeses. Spread the mayonnaise on 1 side of each slice of bread. Flip over half of the bread slices and top each with a heaping 1/4 cup of the cheese mixture.
  2. Chop the cooked bacon slices, then mix with the kimchi and divide among the 4 sandwiches. Top with the remaining cheese mixture and 4 slices of bread, mayonnaise-side up.
  3. In a nonstick skillet, cook the sandwiches in batches as needed over medium heat until the cheese melts and the bread is golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes per side.
