Grilled Cheese with Sliced Tomato and Chipotle Mayo

Scroll down to content

This sandwich is inspired by a sandwich I used to eat all the time at Alterra at the lake (now, apparently, called Colectivo Coffee). Their version, the Wisco Cheese Sandwich, uses cheddar, provolone, and pepper jack cheese.

ingredients.

  • 2 slices of your favorite bread
  • 3 or 4 slices of cheese (I used cheddar)
  • sliced tomato (fresh from your garden, if you have it!)
  • butter
  • chipotle mayo

directions.

  1. Slather two slices of bread with chipotle mayo (the more the better).
  2. Melt 2 teaspoons of butter over medium-low heat on griddle or frying pan and place two pieces of bread (non-mayo side down) on butter.
  3. Cover with 1 1/2 pieces of sliced cheese (or more or less if you prefer). Layer one piece of bread/cheese with sliced tomatoes. Cover and grill until cheese is melted.
  4. Flip non-tomato side slice over tomato side slice. Remove to plate. Cut, if desired, and serve.

I wasn’t sure how this sandwich was going to turn out because of the experimental chipotle mayo. I told myself if it turned out bad, I was only going to have one bite. The first bite. If it was good, I could eat as much as I wanted.

I ate the entire thing. The only thing that would have made this sandwich better was more cheese, more mayo and sourdough bread.

    With tomatoes ripening on the vines in my garden each day, I keep looking for recipes that use tomato (hopefully in abundance). When I lived on the East Side of Milwaukee, Wis., I was within walking distance of this awesome coffee shop that served soups, salads and sandwiches for lunch. It was there that I fell head-over-heels in love with grilled cheese sandwiches. Don’t get me wrong, I always liked grilled cheese sandwiches. Really, really liked grilled cheese sandwiches. But I’d never before had anything on a grilled cheese sandwich besides cheese until finding this masterpiece. Since it’s a pretty long commute from Oregon to Wisconsin, I have to recreate the sandwich in my kitchen. Luckily, it’s easy to do.
