Walleye Cheezer

It is really hard to believe, but some people still do not know what a "cheezer" is yet. What a shame! 
Well, for you lost souls who keep inquiring what this sandwich is all about, I am re-posting it again. 

This is, in my opinion, one of the best sandwiches in the world.
Two years ago, with the help of Brian Waugh, we perfected my
walleye grilled cheese sandwich into what is now known as
"The Cheezer".
It has quickly become one of the favorites here at Black Bear Lodge.

How to make a cheezer...
                                                  - 1 freshly caught under walleye (13-16")
                                                  - Canadian rye bread
                                                  - 2 slices of American cheese
                                                  - 2 slices of bacon
                                                  - a couple of tomato slices
                                                  - a drizzle of hot sauce (for flavor not hotness)

Put the walleye fillets into a pot of boiling water for approx. 5 min or until they are white and flaky.
While the fish is boiling, grill the bread and cheese on a pan(open face grilled cheese). Reheat the bacon (we always have a bunch pre-cooked just for our cheezers). Once the walleye is done, put fillets on a paper towel to dry off  a bit. Then put all of the parts together and enjoy.  Works well with small pike or perch as well.
Try it, you will thank me later.

Also...there is no mess. I can make the sandwich and have the dishes cleaned in under 10 minutes.
