Kath’s Special Cheese Melt Sandwich

May 31, 2010

It was time for lunch and  I was wondering what I could find in the cupboard or the refrigerator that would be tasty. Then I realized that I had the fixings for a pretty yummy sandwich.

I had live fresh basil in a glass of water.

There were some Roma tomatoes.

I had some La Brea Whole Grain Bread.

And there was a small piece of New York cheddar from Ontario Orchards in the refrigerator! (How I wish we had Ontario Orchards in Seattle!)


I was all set!

Here’s how to make Kath’s Special Cheese Melt Sandwich. At least it’s how I made it today. There could be many variations on the theme. You can be creative with this one. I think the only constants are some type of bread product and some type of cheese. Bob thought anchovies would be good on it. Maybe.

(print the recipe)

You’ll notice in the photos that I covered a baking sheet with foil. I thought it would make clean-up easier. It wasn’t such a great idea. The sandwiches stuck a bit to the foil. Next time I would just use the baking sheet without the foil.


1. Preheat the oven to 350˚.

2. Toast the bread.

3. Peel a clove of garlic. Cut it in half and rub the cut half all over the toasted bread.



4. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt.


5. Sprinkle with chopped sweet onions, if desired.


6. Cover with thin slices of a Roma tomato. (1 tomato was enough for the three slices of bread.) Then tear some basil leaves to put on the tomato slices.


7. Cover the sandwiches with slices of cheese. (Your choice. The New York cheddar was very good.)


8. Bake for 5 – 6 minutes, until the cheese melts.

9. Enjoy!
