9. Blackberry Bacon Grilled Cheese

WHY PEOPLE LOVE IT: This sandwich is a little bit of an outlier on this list in that blackberry + jalapeno + bacon + cheese is a pretty uncommon flavor pairing. In fact, against the Pinterest landscape, this sandwich stands out as being decidedly ~high brow~. That said, oozing grilled cheese photos never fail to impress, and maybe the blueberry-jalapeno spin helped this one stand out from the crowd.

6. Skinny Chicken and Avocado Caesar Salad

WHY PEOPLE LOVE IT: This recipe is billed as "skinny," but...is it? The dressing is lighter than traditional Caesar, but between the eggs, avocado, chicken, cheese, and bacon, there's a whole lot (of not-so-skinny stuff) to love. Regardless of the questionable recipe title, this salad looks pretty bomb, and not too complicated to make at home.
