Grilled Cheese and Tomato Sandwiches

In an effort to use some of my garden tomatoes, I once added some thick slices of tomato to my grilled cheese sandwich. The effect was truly yummy!
  • 2 slices whole wheat bread
  • 2 tsp. grainy mustard (I like to use a Bavarian mustard)
  • 2-3 slices cheese (I've found that my favorite mild cheese is farmer's cheese and my favorite sharp cheese is sharp cheddar cheese)
  • 2-3 slices ripe tomato, cut about 1/4" thick
  • cooking spray

Spread the mustard evenly over the slices of bread. Layer the cheese and tomatoes over one slice of bread and top with the other.

Using a griddle or large skillet coated with cooking spray, grill the sandwich until the bread is golden brown and the cheese is melted -- about 10 minutes -- turning once. Serve immediately.
