That’s right… LOW CARB grilled cheese wrapped in bacon.
Instead of bread I make the sandwich with “cauliflower bread”. It does takes a wee bit of effort to make, but it’s so worth it. I use this recipe (step-by-step photos) on The Iron You website.
After cooling the cauliflower bread, just add cheese then wrap the sandwich in bacon. Check out the short BuzzFeed video (and photos) here.

Cauliflower “bread” after about 20 minutes in the oven.
Once it was wrapped in bacon and cooked, I didn’t miss real bread at all.

If you’re on instagram, I tag all my low carb dishes with #LowCarbJo. Enjoy!
The L.A. Times Restaurant Guide describes The Foundry as a “modern bistro”. The food seemed pretty classic, so I wasn’t sure what they meant by that. It’s a little loud inside with cool, crazy jazz playing throughout the space. A great place to meet up with friends and enjoy cocktails and dinner… in the patio area if you want to talk! We ate there with Diane & Ron back in May. Chef Eric Greenspan had recently won the “Grilled Cheese Invitational”. His Short Rib and Tallegio Grilled Cheese w/Apricot Caper Puree won first place in the “Kama Sutra Sammich” category (any kind of bread, any kind of butter, and any kind of cheese, plus additional ingredients). The large tacky trophy was on display above the bar. It was totally out of place and felt just right! My favorite was the Grilled Cheese and of course, the Pork Belly.
