Loaded Baked Potato Grilled Cheese Sandwich

As prepared by Girl Who Ate Everything,

In college I worked at a local restaurant waiting tables, and we had to plate the main entree and side before serving it to our customers.

Our most popular side was a loaded baked potato. We were required to assemble the baked potatoes in a certain order: cheese, (first – so it would melt), butter, sour cream, bacon and green onions. Imagine me repeating this in my head a hundred times in my head every night so that I didn't mess it up. I have it burned into my brain even now.

Even with seeing hundreds of them a night, loaded bakers are still one of my favorite indulgences!

This Loaded Baked Potato Grilled Cheese Sandwich combines not one, but two of my favorite comfort foods. It's all of your favorite baked potato fixings times two, melted in between two pieces of potato bread.


Buttering bread

Start off with your potato bread - the obvious option since we're going for the potato flavor here. Butter the outside of the bread so that you get those beautiful golden brown grill marks.


Spreading sour cream

On the other side of the bread, which is going to be the inside of our sandwich, you want to slather on a thin layer of sour cream. A little goes a long way here. Too much and you've got a soggy sandwich...


Adding cheese

Next, pile on your favorite cheese. And I mean PILE it on. Can you really have too much cheese in a grilled cheese?


Adding cheese and bacon

I'm a purist when it comes to loaded baked potatoes so I added some crumbled bacon and green onions, but if you're not a fan of onions, leave them off.


Adding potato chips

And if you want to get really wild, add some Food Should Taste Good sweet potato chips here for a little crunch and a unique flavor.


Sandwich inside panini maker, ready to cook

Place your filled sandwich on your panini maker and press down to start melting all of the ingredients together. If you don't own a panini maker, no worries! You can cook the sandwich in a skillet with some melted butter for a couple minutes per side and get the same result.
