Weekend Cooking: Grilled Cheese & Tomato Sandwich

14 Sep 2014

After a rainy morning complete with thunderstorms, the weather was perfect for some warm, toasty comfort food.  So I decided to make something super simple, quite yummy, and with the added bonus of also being somewhat healthy.  Using simple ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen, this Grilled Cheese & Tomato Sandwich makes a quick and excellent breakfast.

Based on the recipe by Food.com.  This is most probably the start of a long string of different Grilled Cheese sandwiches in the making.

Grilled Cheese & Tomato Sandwich

Makes 4 sandwiches


  • slices bread
  • 1 tomato, cut into 8 slices
  • slices cheddar cheese (or your favorite kind)

Spread a light layer of mayonnaise on two slices of bread.

On one piece of bread, add a slice of cheese. Cut 2 tomato slices into half, and arrange on the cheese so as to not overlap. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and Italian Seasoning. Cover the tomato slices with another slice of cheese, then cover with the other piece of bread.  Spread butter on both sides of the assembled sandwich.

Repeat the above steps for the other 3 sandwiches.

Melt a dollop of butter in a griddle or pan over medium heat.  Add a dash of garlic powder and stir to mix.  Grill until sandwich is brown on both sides and cheese is melted.  Repeat for the other 3 sandwiches, adding more butter and garlic powder to the pan before grilling.
