Cook Time
Roasted tomato grilled cheese
Total time: 30 minutes
  • 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
  1. Toss cherry tomatoes with olive oil and top on a baking sheet, sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  2. Roast, tossing once, until tomatoes are blistered and about to burst, which will take about 20–25 minutes.
  3. Let tomatoes cool.
  4. Take 1 slice sourdough bread, place a handful of cherry tomatoes on top and gently mash.
  5. Place 2 slices of cheddar cheese on top and cover with another slice of bread.
  6. Spread or brush the outside of the sandwich with 1 tablespoon mayo and cook until light golden brown, about 4-6 minutes.
  7. 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.
  8. You can press down on the sandwich gently so it brown evenly, but don’t smash it.
