Is there anything more comforting than a grilled cheese sandwich? I don’t think so. A friend dropped off a lot of vegetables that he picked from his garden. I had a ton of tomatoes that I needed to use before they would go bad. Lunch arrived. How about adding tomatoes to my grilled cheese. So many people have ketchup with their grilled cheese sandwiches. What is the base of ketchup? That’s right – tomatoes. So we know it will go together well.
- 2 pieces of wheat bread
- 1/4 – 1/2 cup each shredded cheddar and mozzarella cheese
- 3 slices of beefsteak tomato
- 1 tbsp butter
- 1 tbsp canola oil
Heat a skillet on medium heat. Put in 1 tbsp each butter and oil (you could use a little less of each if you prefer). While the pan is heating up, put the cheese on each half of the bread. Layer the cheddar, then the mozzarella and then the cheddar. When the butter has melted, put the bread in and cover the pan. It will take about 3 minutes for the cheese to melt and the bread to brown. Remove the bread from the pan and add the tomatoes.
Put the sandwich together and enjoy!
