Mealthy Tip

Substitute your favorite cheeses, such as Swiss, Fontina, Brie, or Monterey Jack for the Havarti, mozzarella, or Gruyere cheese. Baked kale chips are a nice crunchy side to this decadent sandwich. Sparkling water with lemon pairs well with this grilled cheese. Or if you are in the mood for wine, have a glass of Pinot Gris.

I took everyone's suggestions into consideration and roasted the tomatoes first. Also added bacon, because WHY NOT?! Bacon goes with everything and certainly in this grilled cheese sandwich. Never had havarti cheese before and I really enjoyed it.

I've always loved putting fresh tomato slices in my grilled cheeses, but they always left the bread a bit undesirably soggy. Roasting the tomatoes this way pulls so much of the moisture out, eliminating that problem, but still leaves the tomatoes incredibly juicy and succulent. YUM. Will definitely use these roasted tomatoes elsewhere too - polenta bowls, with fried eggs for breakfast, alongside a simple steak and side salad for dinner.... the list goes on. I like cooking my grilled cheese over medium heat for a longer amount of time (3 to 4 minutes per side) because I'm prone to burning them, but otherwise I followed this recipe verbatim. YUM!

If you love cheese this is the sandwich for you. I added bacon to add some protein but could easily have gone without. The roasted tomatoes were the best part. Very good spin on grilled cheese sandwiches!

Tomatoes on grilled cheese with pesto is a revelation, and roasting them ahead of time is definitely genius, although I will also grill tomatoes and use them that way as well. Very delicious!

I added salami to this grilled cheese and tomato sandwich. My husband love, love, loved it. I also used a homemade pesto sauce, yum.
