  • 1/2 c. mayo
  • 2 T. Dijon mustard

  • 1 c. shredded Gouda
  • 1 c. shredded sharp white Cheddar

  • Combine mayo, DiJon, and Parmesan in a small bowl. Spread each slice of bread with butter on one side. On the other side, spread each slice with the mayo mixture.
  • Arranged bacon evenly on half the slices of bread (the side without mayo). Place 1/2 cup grated cheese on top of the bacon and top with the remaining bread slices that have the mayo mixture
