  • Mince the fresh rosemary.
  • Stir the minced rosemary into the softened butter and set aside while making the bacon.
  • Fry the bacon in a skillet and drain on a paper towel.
  • Slice your tomato and drain on a paper towel.

How To Assemble and grill the sandwich:

  • Place one piece of cheese on the bottom piece of bread. Break the three slices of bacon in half and arrange 3 of the half slices on top of the cheese. Layer the two slices of tomato on top of the bacon.
  • Arrange the remaining three halves of bacon on top of the tomato and layer the last piece of cheese on top of the bacon. Cover with the second slice of white bread. Do not smash your stack down.
  • Heat a skillet on medium-high heat.
  • Butter the top piece of bread with as much herbed butter as you need to cover the piece of bread completely. Lightly butter the edges of the bread.
  • Place a small dollop of the herbed butter into the skillet. Once it begins to sputter your skillet is hot enough.
  • Carefully flip the sandwich over into the pan and butter the other side of the bread.
  • Allow to cook until the bottom piece of bread is golden brown.
  • Flip over and cook the other side until golden brown and your cheese is melted. You can apply a little bit of pressure at this point to the top piece of bread so the cheese melts into the bacon.
  • Remove the grilled sandwich from pan when done.
  • Slice in half and enjoy with a bowl of tomato soup if you like.
  • Serve with a bowl of tomato soup.
  • One sandwich.
