Grilled Tomato-Cheese Sandwiches

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 10 mins

This is my recipe that was published in the January/February 2010 edition of Simple & Delicious magazine, a Taste of Home magazine. It was featured as a recipe in which you can make in 20 minutes or less. This goes well with "Creamy Tomato Soup".

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sprinkle tomatoes and onion over four bread slices.
  2. Layer with cheese slices; top with remaining bread.
  3. Butter outsides of sandwiches.
  4. Toast on a heated griddle for 2-3 minutes on each side or until bread is golden brown and cheese is melted.

Oh Lainey, these are so good! I used 7 grain bread and all the cheeses and it was a heavenly lunch a couple of days ago. No comparison to process cheese food type of grilled cheeses (even though those can be good too). This is a king among grilled cheeses.

This was great! The green onion, tomato and 4 cheeses went so well together and made for a very satisfying lunch. YUM!
I prepared this in a pan, which turned out a little tricky, even though I had sliced and not chopped the tomatoes. It hard to flip, cause everything came out of the sammie when I attempted to turn it. But in the end I succeeded and all was well. :)
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing your recipe with us, Lainey!
