Hungry Girl Bacon / Cheese Sandwich

I wish that turkey bacon came in that pre-cooked kind. If anyone out there has seen it, please let me know!


Hey, Steak 'n Shake -- keep your fatty, greasy, ridiculously high-calorie bacon and cheese melts to yourself! HG's got one that uses slimmed-down ingredients and tastes almost as good as the real thing. Yeah, it really does. Try it.


2 slices Wonder Light White Bread (or another light bread**)

2 strips Jennie-O Extra Lean Turkey Bacon

2 slices Kraft Free Singles, American (or another fat-free American cheese**)

20 sprays I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter! Spray


In a skillet sprayed with no-cal cooking spray, cook bacon strips on medium heat until crispy and fully cooked (about 5 minutes). Evenly spritz butter spray on 1 side of each slice of bread, using 10 sprays per slice. Top the unsprayed side of 1 slice of bread with a slice of cheese. Place cooked bacon strips on top of cheese, and cover with second slice of cheese. Next, top with the other bread slice (with the buttered side facing up). Place sandwich in a skillet sprayed with nonstick cooking spray and cook over low to medium heat until bread is brown and toasty and cheese is nice and melty (about 1 – 2 minutes per side). Use a spatula to press down on sandwich while it cooks. Slice sandwich down the middle, diagonally, or just bite right into it!
