Stirling says that sounds weird enough to try.

Add some fresh tomato slices and I am on board.

I love it so much, I will not make grilled cheese unless I have some fresh ripe tomatoes.
If you have never tried this, you must.

lots of ways to cheat....

I'm fond of a cheddar / fontina mix. but I never shred it - overlapping slices works for me.

little butter in the pan, bit more oil to ensure full contact with the bread, mix, swirl

slices in bread, in the pan, don't worry about the cheese - "pan toast" for color and crispness and pretty factor.

flip, repeat

when the bread looks just right, 10-15 secs on a rotating plate in the microwave to melt the cheese to one's preferred level of gooey-ness.

short, sweet, dumb, simple, works every time. even with tomato.
one of the few good uses for a microwave that I've found.

I have been putting tomatoes and bacon on my grilled cheese sammies for eons.

I don't like anything on a grilled cheese sandwich except cheese.

This recipe doesn't appeal to me. I like the way a grilled cheese is traditionally made. I like them plain, with tomato, bacon.

If it's grilled cheese, we like it around here, but especially with tomatoes and bacon or ham.
