      But using a panini press is lovely. I buttered the outside of both of the 9-grain bread slices, evenly distributed (a quarter inch? maybe) of mexican-style finely shredded cheese (monterey jack, mild chedder, queso quesadilla and asadero cheeses--I used Kroger brand). Used a nicely-ripe roma tomato, cut to cover--pretty much completely--the cheese. This is so easy and really delicious.

      The grilled cheese sandwich just grew up. Made for a quick and tasty lunch. DH loved addition of tomato to his grilled cheese. Made as written using a Roma tomato as that is what I had on hand. Thanks so much for the post.

      Lainey this grilled sandwich was delicious. I love grilled cheese, they are my special weakness. These certainly do not disappoint. I used a lovely crusty european bread and old aged balderson good. Thank you so much for sharing your quick and easy to make treat. I will be making this again.
