How does this not sound amazing? Cheese, bacon, BBQ sauce, and onions?! (I added bacon because I just love it, the end.) I get a specialized sandwich from Sonic that is like this so I wanted to try to make a homemade one.

5) Add 1/2 tbsp of butter to pan for each sandwich. Lay bread in pan, butter side down BBQ sauce side up. Put a layer of the sharp cheddar, bacon, onions, and then pepper jack. Then place the another piece of bread BBQ sauce side down, butter side up.

6) Flip continuously until bread is golden and cheese is melted. Use a lid to make cheese melt faster. (I just used the huge lid I used for the bacon.)
