Calories Per Serving


  • 1/2 Cup cherry tomatoes
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • Pinch of thyme
  • 2 slices soft sourdough bread
  • 1 Tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 Tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 2 slices white cheddar cheese


Toss cherry tomatoes with olive oil and top on a baking sheet, sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Roast, tossing once, until tomatoes are blistered and about to burst, which will take about 20–25 minutes.

Let tomatoes cool.

Take 1 slice sourdough bread, place a handful of cherry tomatoes on top and gently mash.

Place 2 slices of cheddar cheese on top and cover with another slice of bread.

Spread or brush the outside of the sandwich with 1 tablespoon mayo and cook until light golden brown, about 4-6 minutes.

Flip the sandwich, (add more butter to the pan if needed) and cook the other side until brown and the cheese is melted, another 4-6 minutes.

You can press down on the sandwich gently so it brown evenly, but don’t smash it.
