Potato & Cheese Grilled (PCG) Sammich

Submitted by: SERENDIPITYFR0G

Introduction

I love baked potatoes. I love grilled cheese. So I thought, Why not combine both?! YUMMMM!! I love baked potatoes. I love grilled cheese. So I thought, Why not combine both?! YUMMMM!!
Number of Servings: 1

Ingredients

    1 sm potato, raw., sliced
    1 serving bacon (I used turkey bacon)
    1 tbsp Sour Cream (divided)
    2 tbsp Chives, chopped
    1 slice American Cheese (split in half)
    Pinch Garlic Powder, to taste
    Pinch Pepper, to taste
    2 Slices French Bread (small)
    Non-stick cooking spray (I use butter flavor)

Tips

Only 400 calories, but wayyyyy too much sodium (I am looking for ways to cut this down)... Try to find these 3 ingredients with the least amount of sodium that you can find: french bread, cheese and bacon. Doing so will cut the sodium way down.

Make it a BLT-PCG ~ Thats a bacon, lettuce, tomato, baked potato, cheese sammich. ohmygoodness!! I might try that next! LOL


Directions

Heat a fry pan over medium heat, spray with no-stick spray. Cut your raw potato into 4 -5 even thickness slices. Place potato slices in heated pan. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Cook potatoes until browned and crispy. Take potatoes out, set aside. In same pan, cook bacon on medium heat to desired crispiness. When bacon is done, take out, drain, set aside to cool slightly, when cool, crumble. Clean out the pan, of any grease using paper towel or paper napkin to clean all the little "bits" out, if any.

Take your bread, spray one side with cooking spray, set that side down in the pan, on other side, spread 1/2 tbsp sour cream, half a slice of cheese, the potato slices, bacon, chopped chives, half slice of cheese. Take the second slice of bread, spread the remaining 1/2 tbsp sour cream on one side, place that side down, on top of the filling, then spray the outside with cooking spray.

Now fry the sandwich like you would a grilled cheese. You want the outside golden brown.

Serving Size: 1 sandwich
