I wanted a grilled cheese sandwich. But, after visiting the Der Pretzel Wagen food truck here in Indianapolis a few days earlier and grabbing an outrageously good pretzel sandwich (The Ham Solo, is my favorite), I was also jonesin’ for a pretzel. I’m always jonesin’ for a pretzel. So, I decided to combine the two desires into a very easy sandwich. Pretzel ‘bun’, melty gooey cheese, crispy bacon, and a bit of Dijon mustard. These pretzel grilled bacon and cheese sandwiches are easy to make, and quite tasty. They make for a delicious lunch time treat!
I didn’t go the fancy route. I used frozen pre-made pretzels. Heck, I’ve tried to make my own pretzels and I can’t. And American cheese. My pretzel grilled bacon and cheese sandwiches are good enough to hold me over until I can get back to Der Pretzel Wagen food truck for one of their pretzel sandwiches!
Update: Sadly, Der Pretzel Wagen is no longer open for business! I sure do miss their food. Hopefully they’ll come back some day.
To get the cheese all ooey-gooey I tossed the sandwiches on a hot Griddler for a few minutes.
Also try my delicious fried bologna sandwich.
