This Havarti Breakfast Grilled Cheese Sandwich is made with crispy bacon, fried eggs, and two kinds of Havarti cheese! It’s simple, yet perfect for any meal – especially breakfast!
I’m kind of a spaz when it comes to dairy, cheese in particular.
Huge, huge fan here, folks. Cheddar, Swiss, pepper jack, brie, feta. You name it, and I’m into it. Except for bleu cheese – you all know my aversion to that junk. And goat cheese, but blech, that’s both literally and figuratively a different animal that I won’t even get into today.
I can easily remember cheese being a favorite food of mine all the way back to my childhood. I used to sneak in to the refrigerator (when I was tall enough to reach the dairy drawer), quietly pull out a slice of yellow American, unwrap it reverently, and proceed to fold it in half and bite little holes in it and make a weird, cubist, Hannibal Lecter-esque mask that I then proceeded to wear around the house before devouring.
I had quite the imagination, and luckily, lived in a house that fully supported my nonsense.
Nana made grilled cheese sandwiches and soup at least once a week for dinner, and while the soup was different every time, the sandwich was always the classic version.
I love being a grown up, now, so I can eat the grown up types. For example, this wonderful Havarti Breakfast Grilled Cheese Sandwich comes to mind, and that’s what we’re going to drool over today!
Grilled cheese isn’t just for lunch and dinner, you know.
When you grab a fast food breakfast sandwich, how is it normally described? Egg, breakfast meat, bread vessel, with cheese.
See, that’s where this sandwich differs. This is a grilled cheese with all that other stuff.
Don’t get me wrong. Bacon is just as important to me as the next guy, but don’t miss my point. We are celebrating the beauty that is the Grilled Cheese Sandwich, and the fact that we can put anything on it that we want. Which includes breakfasty toppings.
And aaaaaaaall the bacon.
In the case of this particular morning glory, I chose to start with some grainy, chewy, delicious organic wheat bread, and my favorite Arla Dofino Havarti cheese.
I discovered the wonder of Havarti only a couple of years ago, when Mr. Crumby brought some home (for one reason or another), and we ended up throwing it on to turkey sandwiches as a quick dinner.
I fell in love, and haven’t looked back – it has become my go-to cheese. And when I found out that we carried the Arla Dofino brand in the deli department (not dairy!) at work, I was thrilled!
It’s free of added hormones, artificial flavors and preservatives, and has been crafted with quality, natural ingredients in Wisconsin for over 100 years.
It’s obviously got some staying power.
The Havarti transforms this sandwich, guys! I’m not even joking – it’s so soft and gooey, and the dill variety has just the right amount of dill so it’s not overpowering.
And if you’re organically inclined, Eureka! makes the greatest grainy breads that pair with this sandwich.
Mr. Crumby was hesitant about it after taking a bite straight out of the bag, but when the masterpiece was complete, it was the ultimate breakfast sandwich!
Chewy and crunchy, gooey and slightly sweet, and absolutely filling. One Havarti Breakfast Grilled Cheese was plenty, even for a two sandwich kind of guy.
