Sometimes a grilled cheese tastes like the best tasting sandwich in the whole world. As a little girl in kindergarten back when kindergarten was 1/2 a day, I would come home and want a grilled cheese sandwich (American cheese) and tomato soup (Campbell’s). Although I wouldn’t pass on this American delight still, I think my pallet has heightened a little. I’ve said it before in a post last year… Wow! Last year? It was when I shared my Creamy Roasted Tomato & Garlic Soup with Grilled Cheese on Rosemary Garlic Bread….Well, today I decided to incorporate the roasted tomato into the sandwich with a smoked Gouda…
Grilled Smoked Gouda & Prosciutto With Roasted Garlic, Tomato & Onions
1 cup sliced Gouda cheese
1 can diced tomatoes, drained and rinsed
1/4 cup roasted garlic
1 onion diced medium
4 Tbs mayonnaise
1 Tbs olive oil
2 Tbs fresh parsley
salt & pepper
4 rolls or 8 slices of bread
Preheat oven to 400 °F. In an oven safe skillet or on a cookie sheet, toss the tomatoes, onions and garlic with the olive oil. Place in the oven and roast for 45 – 50 minutes until vegetables are roasted and golden.
On a roll or bread of your choosing, spread mayonnaise and add a layer of cheese. Then spread on the roasted vegetable mixture and another layer of cheese. Grill in butter on a grill pan pressing down with a weight if you have one until the cheese is oozing out. Delicious!
