3 The Cook
When you’re at temp, put cooking oil on a folded paper towel. Grab the oiled paper towel with long-handled tongs and oil the grate thoroughly.
Spray the top and bottom of your cheese sandwiches with canola oil and place them on the grill. Grill your sandwiches for 2–3 minutes per side, gently pressing them with a spatula until the bread is golden brown and the cheese is melted. Then, remove your grilled cheese sandwiches from the grill and cut each of them into 4 squares.
Now, place your patties on the grill and cook them for about 4 minutes on each side until they reach an internal temperature of 160°F.
When they’re ready, remove your patties from the grill and place each patty on a grilled cheese section, top with 2 small slices of bacon and another grilled cheese section. Serve immediately.
