Grilled Cheese & Tomato Jam

Grilled Cheese & Tomato Jam

Who doesn't love a grilled cheese sandwich? I haven't met anyone yet that doesn't. I'm all about cheese, really!

This sandwich is special for two reasons: one it is super gooey and secondly it combines a sweet and salty combination that it is to die for.

This recipe yields a cup of tomato jam & 2 grilled cheese sandwiches.


6 ripe tomatoes (peeled and seeded)

1 clove garlic (mashed)

1/4 Balsamic vinegar

2 1/2 tablespoons of sugar

a pinch of salt

2 Burger buns

4 slices of Munster cheese

2 tablespoon of butter


1. In a sauce pan place: tomatoes, garlic, vinegar, sugar and salt, over low heat, let it simmer for about 2 hours until all liquid is evaporated. That will give you the delicious jam.

2. Slice bread buns in two and butter side down of the bread.

3. Spread a tablespoon of the tomato jam on each side. Add 2 slices of cheese and top with the other piece of bread.

4. Place on a grill or a panini press, and let it heat through until cheese is melted and bubbly.


1. This recipe is from: Grilled cheese, please! by Laura Werlin. The book has 50 grilled cheese sensational sandwiches and I just try to emulate the recipe on the cover, which originally was with cheddar. Feel free to check this book out!
