    One of my favorite dishes to make in the winter is homemade pasta with sweet peas and bacon. Add a little bit of goat cheese and it gets even better in my humble opinion. That's how I was inspired to create this sandwich. It's rich, creamy, meaty, and fresh and it makes a super delicious grilled cheese sandwich.

    Sauteed butternut squash, crispy bacon, and melted gouda come together between two buttery toasted slices of lard bread to create a sweet and savory sandwich that highlights the beautiful flavors of fall. The bread this this sandwich calls for is made with lard, so the fat content is much higher than regular store-bought bread.

    Camping Grilled Cheese

    Make your next camping trip even more special by grilling up some tasty grilled cheese sandwiches! All you need are sandwich ingredients, a cast iron pan (or a waffle iron), and a fire. It's even better if you have some sort of mesh lid, like a grease splatter screen or a large sifter, so that it will help keep the ash off of your food. 

    As for fillings, you can totally get creative here, but I always recommend using leftovers or bacon because then you can use the bacon grease, rather than the butter, to cook the sandwich in. You can even pre-make the sandwiches at home, wrap them in tinfoil, and throw them in a bag so that they're ready to cook whenever you get hungry.
