I personally have been a fan of grilled cheese for decades. I just can’t seem to help myself. I just love cheese. This recipe for the Queen’s Cheese ‘n Toast is so yummy. This recipe must be on every cheese lovers bucket list. I am not kidding. My friend Rills showed me this recipe for the first time and I have been addicted ever since!
I can’t decide personally if I like Queen’s Cheese ‘n Toast better with or without the egg. Including bacon and onions is also a yummy change that is for sure. I just make it sometimes with and sometimes without. All are delicious. Now you will have to decide for yourself. See how yummy it looks! Grab a knife and fork and enjoy this delicious treat! Who doesn’t love cheese and all of that other good stuff!

Queen's Cheese 'n Toast
- 1 pound cheddar, old, thinly sliced
- 1 large tomato, diced, seeds removed, just the flesh optional
- 1/2 cup onion, purple, diced more or less to taste
- 4 slices bread, sliced, toasted, buttered if desired
- 1-2 tablespoons butter, plus more for the toast, if desired
- 4 large eggs, fried or poached optional
- 1/2 pound bacon, chopped, cooked until crisp optional
In a medium sized saucepan, over low heat, add 1-2 tablespoons butter. Allow to melt. Add thinly sliced cheese, one layer at a time. As each layer starts to melt add another and stir gently until melted. Actually you don't really stir the cheese, you are just adjusting it. Gently keep cheese moving around in the pot until fully melted. Then stir. Drain off any excess oil but not all of it. Add tomato, crisp bacon or onion and stir continuously until well blended. Remove from heat. Toast bread, butter if desired, and place on your plate for serving. Try to toast your bread while cheese is melting so toast is ready when cheese is melted. Spoon cheese mixture on top of toast. Serve with a fried or poached egg on top if desired. Enjoy!
