grilled cheese sandwich


In a small mixing bowl, combine the honey and sliced cucumber and allow it to set for about 10 minutes. Drain off the liquid and reserve. Butter the bread slices and make four grilled cheese sandwiches open faced. To assemble sandwiches, fill two sandwiches with bacon, tomato, basil and a light sprinkle of sea salt. Fill the remaining two sandwiches with the cucumber mixture and arugula. You can stack these sandwiches, similar to a club sandwich, for a great melding of flavors.
