This is something I make when someone in the house needs some major comfort food. It goes really well with tomato soup, and it’s my daughter’s favorite. It might take a little longer than a “normal” grilled cheese, but the flavors really are rather amazing, if I may say so myself.
Depending on what’s in the fridge depends on exactly what goes into it.
The basic ingredients are:
- 2 slices of hearty whole grain bread
- Butter or margarine or olive oil
- Stone ground mustard
- 2 kinds of cheese
- Deli sliced ham or roast beef or turkey or whatever meat you prefer.
- Onions (any kind) sliced thin or if using green onions, chopped finely
- Hot oven (at least 400 degrees) and greased foil-liked cookie sheet.
For the sandwich in the picture, I had colby/jack and motz cheese, and green onions.
- Preheat oven. Need it nice and hot to get a crispy crust.
- Butter one side of the bread and lay it butter-side down on the foil. Using spray olive oil is good, and makes a very crispy crust.
- Put a thin coat of stone-ground mustard (or your favorite kind of mustard) on one slice of bread. A little mayo on the other slice.
- On both slices I layer, a couple of thin slices of cheese, then the meat (at least a slice on both sides, more if you’re using thinly sliced deli meat), thinly sliced tomato, and then top it off with the motz and sprinkled with green onions.
- Place in the oven for 10-15 minutes until cheese is melty and the bread is a nice toasty brown. SO GOOD!
