Bacon, Beans, & Cheese

A friend, Jonah, recently told me about a sandwich that is supposedly amazing. The sandwich consists of baked beans, bacon, and cheese all on sourdough bread. Today I decided to make this glorious sandwich for lunch.




It was amazing. Actually, amazing is an understatement.

The sandwich Jonah makes is a little different than how I made mine today. Because I lacked the exact ingredients I had to improvise. But it was still delicious.

The Build:

Toast 2 slices of sourdough bread (I used wheat).
Heat up some baked beans.
Cook the bacon until it starts to crinkle.
Cut some cheese (C'mon you know what I mean).
  • Use some really sharp cheddar cheese, I used colby jack because that's what I had on hand.

For the Miracle:

Top the bread with the baked beans.
Top the beans with the bacon.
Top the bacon with the cheese.

Put it in the oven on about 200 degrees just so the cheese melts and the bacon gets crispy.

Make it put a smile on your face:

Put the two halves together.

Are you impressed yet? If not, I'm not quite sure you are even human.

The flavor combination is amazing. You have the salty bacon flavor, the sweet brown sugar from the baked beans, and of course that cheese flavor all topped with the slight crunch of the bread.

Jonah, your sandwich is probably the best thing that's ever made it's way to my yummy. For my readers, go make this sandwich right now.

Feel free to send me recipes to try or perfect. I will add them to my blog so be careful if you don't want me to unleash the secrets of your great-great-great-great-great-great-great-grandmother's chunky corn bread. Check back often to see what else I'm cookin' up!


  1. LIghtly toast the bread before you put the beans down. That way the bean juices don't seep in. Put the rack one down from the top and broil the sammich. That way the bread gets a little more crispy around the edges, and the bacon gets crisp without the cheese melting too much and loosing it's sharpness. The black wrapped tillamook aged cheddar is the best cheese to use. SO GOOD!!!


    1. Thank you for specifying (: I can't wait to get some aged cheddar to try this!
