I love grilled cheese and tomato sandwiches, so naturally I was intrigued by this recipe for Inside-Out English Muffin Grilled Cheese sandwiches. It’s a tasty and fun way to jazz up a lunch-time classic.
The recipe calls for sharp white cheddar cheese, which has a bolder flavor than the medium cheddar I used. Any kind of cheddar will produce a good sandwich so use what you have or splurge on the fancy sharp white cheddar. Definitely buy the best tomatoes you can find because lame tomatoes will add no flavor at all to this sandwich. Serve with a green salad or fresh veggie sticks. Enjoy!
Inside-Out English Muffin Grilled Cheese
-recipe from Every Day with Rachael Ray Magazine, November 2009
“This is the only way I make grilled cheese now. I sometimes swap the tomatoes for arugula or spinach or crisp bacon. Or I just have straight cheese. Try emmentaler or havarti cheese, too, and serve with a salad.” -R.R.
4 sandwich-size English muffins
8 slices sharp white cheddar cheese
Four 1/4-inch-thick slices beefsteak tomato
Salt and pepper
Heat a cast-iron skillet or griddle over medium-low heat. Lightly spread the inside of each English muffin half with butter. Arrange the muffins buttered sides out and build 4 sandwiches, each with a cheese slice, a tomato slice, some salt and pepper and another cheese slice. Place the sammies in the pan and cook, turning once or twice, until the cheese is melted and the muffins are golden-brown, about 8 minutes.
