After a few weeks of hiatus, college cooking is back! This week, we will be taking something boring- a sandwich- and opening it up a little. It’s time to introduce the bacon-cheese melt. This recipe is very simple, but it does require either a toaster oven or an actual oven, so make sure you have somewhere to cook this before you attempt it.


You need: An oven or a toaster oven, an oven or toaster oven safe baking sheet/tray, and a hot pad.



  • Two slices of bread
  • Two slices of cooked bacon
  • Two slices of 2% Kraft Singles American cheese


How To Make:

  1. Set your oven to broil (500 degrees) or your toaster oven as hot as it will go.
  2. Place the slices of bread with one face up on the sheet or tray.
  3. Put the slices of cheese on top of the slices of bread.
  4. Break the already cooked slices of bacon in half and put two halves on one slice of bread, and the other two halves on the other.
  5. Place in the oven/toaster oven and make sure to watch them cook. They can burn easily and will be done in five minutes or less. 
  6. Take out using a hot pad and wait for them to cool before removing them from the tray/sheet. Enjoy!
