How to Make Bacon and Roasted Tomato Grilled Cheese Sammie


  1. Cook bacon, this is the method I use. Place bacon on heavy baking sheet, bake in 375ยบ oven for 20-25 min depending on thickness of bacon, drain.
  2. Slice tomatoes and place a tad of olive oil in a non stick skillet or on a flat griddle, roast tomato slices turning once.
  3. Butter bread on one or both sides. Toast on one side on griddle then flip, place grated cheese, bacon, roasted tomatoes, Thai garlic chile sauce and fresh cilantro leaves on, then top with more cheese, place 2nd slice of bread on top. Toast on low heat until cheese is melted (you can also place in oven on 375-400 for a few minutes on baking sheet to finish melting cheese once bread is toasted.
  4. Cheeses- I prefer using a white melting cheese such as Muenster, Asadero or Monterey Jack or pepper jack.
