    MarraMamba's Note:

    Adding the tomato after the sandwich has cooked and cheese melted make this grilled cheese different. Its great not to have a mushy hot tomato in a grilled cheese. From Bon Appetit

      This is a delicious sandwich! As suggested by Redsie, I used my George Foreman grill and it came out so good! I love asiago cheese and the sourdough bread is perfect with these ingredients. Thanks for sharing!
