Oven-Baked Grilled Cheesy Sandwich (A family favorite)

20150503_202952This 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
  • Mayo
  • 2 kinds of cheese
  • Deli sliced ham or roast beef or turkey or whatever meat you prefer.
  • Tomatoes
  • 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.

  1. Preheat oven. Need it nice and hot to get a crispy crust.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Place in the oven for 10-15 minutes until cheese is melty and the bread is a nice toasty brown. SO GOOD!
