BAKED GRILLED CHEESE WITH ROASTED TOMATOES

I’m not sure if this is a healthier version of a grilled cheese, but they tasted wonderful.  It’s really more of a cheese toast.  Here are the directions.

You will need:

Sliced whole grain bread

Muenster Cheese slices

Cheddar Cheese slices

Roma tomatoes

First, slice the roma tomatoes, and place on a foil lined baking sheet.  (I use foil to make the clean up easier)  Brush tomato slices with olive oil, and season with kosher salt and fresh ground pepper.  Bake in pre-heated 325 degree oven for 20 to 25 minutes.  They should look like this…

Next, toast bread in toaster just until crispy.  Place toasted bread on a new baking sheet, and top heavily with roasted tomatoes.

In the meantime, turn your oven to broil.  Preferably to low broil if your oven has that setting.  Top toast with a slice of muenster cheese, then a slice of cheddar cheese.

Place toast slices back in the oven.  If you don’t have a low broiler setting, watch them closely, and when cheese is brown and bubbly, they are done.  If you do have a low broiler, let the toast get good and hot on low, then turn broiler to high for the last minute so cheese gets nice and bubbly.

I served my sandwiches with baked sweet potatoes fries, but they were terrible!!  If anyone has a good sweet baked sweet potato fry recipe, please send it to me!!  Mine are always mushy.

Everyone have a great weekend!

    They seem wonderful! A sort of ‘bruschette’, the Italian name of grilled slices of grain bread and tomatoes, basil, garlic, and extra virgin oil, usually tomatoes are raw. This is a very delicious change!

    Love love love your beautiful food posts! Grilled cheese is hands down one of my fave foods, along with mushrooms…so I was very excited to see your mushroom toast! We lost many of our plants to winter too, I hope that replanting helped replace your loss!

    Joy the baker has just posted a recipe about sweet potaoe fries. She uses egg white – maybe thaat will help crisp them up? Here’s the link http://www.joythebaker.com/blog/2011/03/baked-curry-sweet-potato-fries/#more-4868

    Both look very tasty : )

    Thanks for the great recipes! To make yam fries, I cut the yams into pieces (rounds or fry-like long pieces), toss them in olive oil and a bit of salt or cajun spice, and then the trick is to bake them on a cookie sheet so the heat can hit them from bottom and top. I cook them at around 200 celcius for about 15 minutes, and then flip them and cook another 5.

    Don’t be tempted to parboil first for faster cooking time because that definitely makes them soggy!

    I’ve tried just about every sweet potato fry recipe and they always end up a bit mushy :( Now I cut them up, toss them with olive oil and salt and pepper then roll them in panko before baking. The panko gives it a bit of crunch to counteract the sweet potato texture. Even my 3 year old approves (and helps cook!)
