The Au Gratin Potato Grilled Cheese

I've been told eating a good breakfast sets the tone for the rest of the day, and that a healthy breakfast should contain protein and fiber. Protein can come from low fat meats, eggs, beans or dairy (meaning cheese, right?). Fiber can come from whole grains, vegetables and fruits.

So, this morning I clearly set the tone for this Sunday Fun Day by making the Au Gratin Potato Grilled Cheese. What could be more comforting than layers of potatoes and shredded cheese (a blend of Monterey Jack, medium cheddar, Queso Quesadilla and Asadero cheese) baked in a mixture of heavy cream, chicken stock and fresh rosemary? Then take your baked au gratin potatoes and layer them again between slices of crisp bacon and two slices of Colby Jack. I would pick this grilled cheese sandwich over shredded wheat any day of the week!
