Instructions
  1. From the short edge of a 450 g cheese brick, use a cheese slicer or vegetable peeler to thinly slice 8 pieces of cheese, each about 3/4 inches wide by 3-1/2 inches long.
  2. Heat a large skillet sprayed with cooking spray over medium heat. Add hash browns and cook until golden and crispy, about 20 minutes, flipping halfway.
  3. Lay 4 slices of cheese crosswise on one warm hash brown, top with 4 pieces of bacon. Top evenly with remaining cheese and hash brown. Cook, covered, until cheese is melted, about 3 to 4 minutes. Cool 2 minutes before cutting to serve.
  4. Serve with warm gravy for dipping.
Recipe Notes

For a vegetarian version, add a little "green" by replacing the bacon with 1/4 cup (60 ml) spinach leaves before finishing with second layer of cheese and hash brown. Cook as directed. You can also try this grilled cheese with Great Value Farmers Marble Cheese for the added taste of cheddar.
