4 (3/4-ounce) slices Land O Lakes® Italian Blend

4 slices artisan Italian bread

2 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter, softened


2 heads baby romaine lettuce, split lengthwise

1/4 cup crisply cooked bacon

1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion

1/4 cup Caesar dressing

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat gas grill on medium-high or charcoal grill until coals are ash white.

  2. STEP 2

    Layer 2 slices cheese onto 2 slices bread; top with remaining bread slices. Spread outside of bread slices with butter. Place onto grill. Cook, turning once, 5-8 minutes or until golden brown. Cool slightly. Cut into 1-inch cubes.

  3. STEP 3

    Place halved romaine lettuce heads directly onto grill. Cook 2-3 minutes or until grill marks appear. Turn 90 degrees; cook 2-3 minutes or until grill marks appear.

  4. STEP 4

    Remove lettuce heads to serving plates. Top each with croutons, bacon, onion slices and dressing.

  5. STEP 5

    Serve with additional dressing, if desired.

Tip #1

Grilled cheese sandwiches can be made ahead and kept at room temperature up to 2 hours. Place onto cooling rack to keep bread crisp. If you prefer, you can cook sandwiches on stovetop in 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat.
