Coffee bacon grilled cheese


For the bacon:

  • 3 strips of bacon
  • ½ Tbsp. ground coffee
  • 2 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • ½ Tbsp. leftover coffee

For the sandwich:

  • 3 slices of provolone cheese
  • 2 slices of whole wheat bread
  • 2 Tbsp hummus
  • Cooking oil spray


Preheat your oven or toaster oven to 375°F. Place strips of bacon on aluminum foil and sprinkle with coffee grounds. Mix brewed coffee and brown sugar in a bowl and brush bacon with mixture. Bake for 15 minutes and flip bacon. Coat bacon with remaining mixture and bake until crispy, about 10 minutes.

Smear hummus on the inside of bread slices and add the bacon and provolone between the slices. Spray pan with cooking and cook on a frying pan. Flip sandwich when crispy and cook until cheese is melted. Enjoy!
