Ingredients
  

  • 6 slices hickory-smoked bacon
  • 4 slices rustic white bread
  • 2 slices Land O' Lakes pre-sliced provolone cheese
  • 2 slices Kerrygold pre-sliced Cheddar cheese 3/4 oz each
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup pale ale beer
  • 1/4 cup Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon chipotle chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon butter

Instructions
 

  • In 12-inch nonstick skillet, cook bacon until crisp; drain on paper towel.
  • On 2 of the bread slices, place 1 slice provolone cheese, 3 slices bacon and 1 slice Cheddar cheese on each. Top with remaining bread slices.
  • Heat griddle or skillet over medium-high heat or to 375°F. In shallow bowl, beat egg, beer, flour and chili powder with fork until smooth. Dip each sandwich into batter, giving it a few seconds on each side to absorb the batter; drain excess batter back into bowl.
  • Melt butter on hot griddle. Place sandwiches on griddle. Cook 3 to 4 minutes on each side until golden brown.
