Grilled Tomato Basil Cheese Sandwich

Yummo with Tomato Basil Soup!


  • 4 slices Sourdough or Italian bread
  • 4 slices Mozzarella cheese
  • 4 thin slices of firm ripe tomatoes
  • Advertisement

  • 4 Tbsp. Parmesan cheese, finely shredded
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh basil, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp. balsamic vinegar
  • Salt and pepper to taste, if desired
  • 2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic salt


Layer the cheese and tomatoes on 2 slices of bread. Evenly sprinkle with parmesan, basil, vinegar, salt and pepper. Top with remaining bread slices.

Combine the oil and garlic salt in a small bowl and brush over the outsides of both sandwiches.

Toast sandwiches in a skillet over medium heat, pressing occasionally, until golden brown on both sides and cheese is melted.

I can't wait until summer so I'll probably go with supermarket basil and farm stand winter tomatoes, but it'll be better than none at all. Thank you.

I often use tomatoes on my grilled cheese and I sometimes put grated parmesan mixed with butter on the outside for a tasty crunch to the bread. I have never thought of using balsamic - that sounds wonderful.

Hi Pjay ;-) I love your idea of mixing butter and Parmesan for the bread spread for a crunchy effect! I am actually planning on making this for dinner tonight (along with homemade Fire Roasted Tomato Soup) and am going to use your butter and parm but still add the garlic to it ;-) Thanks for the tip!
