I slice it thin and put it on before grilling (just one slice). The tomato gets soft, but the sandwich does not get soggy. Give it a try next time you make a grilled cheese. You will be converted. I also sprinkle a little (or a lot) of garlic powder on before grilling.
When the band Phish was still around, one of my favorite things was buying garlic grilled cheese in the parking lot before and after the shows. $1 for a sandwich. Those were always the best grilled cheese sandwiches ever.
