potato leek grilled cheese

potatoes. leeks. bacon. dijon. fresh mozzarella. this is, like, me.

potato leek grilled cheese
makes 2 sandwiches

you'll need:
1/4 lb. roasted potatoes, thinly sliced (i had leftovers from this recipe. either follow that recipe to get the potatoes, or make them your own favorite way!)
1/3 cup leeks, thinly sliced
4 pieces of bacon
about 4 oz. fresh mozzarella, sliced or shredded
2 tablespoons dijon mustard
4 slices bread (i like a nutty whole grain bread for this)

heat a skillet over medium-high heat and cook bacon until brown and crispy. set aside on a paper towel-lined plate. drain off MOST of the grease, but not all. we've got more cooking to do.

cook leeks in bacon grease until tender, about 3-4 minutes. set aside in a small bowl.

now it's time to assemble the sandwiches! dividing the ingredients evenly, pile sandwiches with potatoes, leeks, bacon, and mozzarella. spread dijon mustard on other piece of bread and place on top.

grill sandwiches in skillet until brown and crispy on each side, about 3-4 minutes per side. cut in half and YUM.


  1. In love with this idea!! Never thought to put potato on a grilled cheese. Oh, and I LOVE leeks :) Thanks for this great idea and Merry Christmas!

    1. If you love leeks (ME TOO), you'll love this! Merry, merry Christmas, Ashley!

  2. It's like an ensemble piece - full of stars.
