2011 has begun, and I’m already on my way to cooking more! Even though I wasn’t feeling especially creative for lunch today, I did my best. I wanted to make something easy, and that’s exactly what a grilled cheese sandwich is known for. But I didn’t want it to just be cheddar cheese. I had some leftover Swiss cheese in the fridge, and a delicious looking tomato, so I added those in and made my own sandwich recipe.
I only had a block of cheddar cheese, and I did my best to cut it nicely. That didn’t work too well though.
In retrospect, I probably shouldn’t have used so much tomato. It was kind of difficult to flip the sandwich without having the tomato pieces fly out. Live and learn!
Delicious and really easy!
Grilled Cheddar, Swiss and Tomato Sandwich
- 1 Tbs. butter
- no-stick cooking spray
- 2 slices wheat bread
- 2 slices cheddar cheese
- 2 slices Swiss cheese
- 1 med. tomato, chopped
Preheat skillet over medium heat and spray with no-stick cooking spray. Butter one side of the two slices of bread. Place bread slices butter-side-down onto skillet bottom and add 1 slice of cheddar cheese. Then add slices of tomato, followed by slice of Swiss cheese. Place one slice on top of the other so that all of the two slices of bread are on the outside. Grill until lightly browned and flip over; continue grilling until cheese is melted.
