This is not your childhood grilled cheese sandwich. Arugula, basil, thick Oklahoma bacon and Havarti cheese elevate this to what will soon be your new favorite sandwich.


  • 1 tbsp Andrews Honey Bees Pure Honey
  • 1 cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 4 tbsp Braum's Butter
  • 8 slices Havarti cheese
  • 8 slices Braum's Fresh Market Artisan Bread
  • 8 sliced Greer's Ranch House Bacon
  • 4 think slices tomato
  • 1 package Scissortail Farms basil
  • sea salt
  • 1 cup Scissortail Farms arugula



1. In a small mixing bowl combine the honey and sliced cucumber, and allow it to set for about 10 minutes. Drain off the liquid and reserve.
2. Butter the bread slices and make four grilled cheese sandwiches open faced.
3. To assemble sandwiches, fill two sandwiches with bacon, tomato, basil and a light sprinkle of sea salt. Fill the remaining two sandwiches with the cucumber mixture and arugula. You can stack these sandwiches, similar to a club sandwich, for a great melding of flavors.
