Potato Pancake Grilled Cheese with Bacon & Spinach
Student Chef: Nicholas Troup
Nicholas Troup, of Inland Northwest Culinary Academy, tied for second place in our Culinary Student Recipe Contest with this very flavorful and good-enough-for company version of the much-loved grilled cheese sandwich. Nick uses wonderfully seasoned potato pancakes instead of bread, and adds bacon, spinach and Swiss cheese to the filling. Contest judges agreed his creation was unique and satisfying. They suggest serving the sandwich with a simple salad. Nick starts from scratch, with whole Russet potatoes.
