Ingredients

  • 4 slices bread any kind
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil or use butter instead
  • 4 slices cheese any, but make sure it’s tasty!
  • 3.5 ounces bacon I used 4 slices
  • 5 ounces artichokes chopped, in oil or brine (I used about half a 275 gram jar)
  • onion relish optional

Instructions
 

  • Pre-heat a sandwich press or grill / frying pan.
  • Cook the bacon for 5 to 10 minutes or until starting to crisp (either on the sandwich press or grill / frying pan you're going to use to cook your sandwich).
  • Drizzle the olive oil over the bread and spread a little with a knife (alternatively, spread with butter).
  • Turn the slices of bread over so the olive oiled side is facing down, then spread with a little onion relish (if using, but highly recommended!).
  • Top with 1 slice of cheese, the bacon, artichokes, and finally another slice of cheese.
  • Top with the other 2 slices of bread (oiled side up) and cook until the cheese has melted and the top of the sandwich is nicely browned.

Notes

Amounts are only guestimates, of course. Throw as much of the yummy ingredients on your sandwich as possible!
