Three-Cheese Grilled Sandwich with Tomatoes and Onions

Who would have thought that old comfort food, grilled cheese, would make such a comeback-not only as a casual sandwich at home, but also as an elegant appetizer at parties. Here’s a twist on the traditional; I use it as a lunch item, on buffets and even cut into quarters as an appetizer.

1. Divide the cheddar, Parmesan and goat cheese between two slices of bread. Top with the sliced tomatoes and onions. Cover with the remaining two slices of bread. Spray both sides of each sandwich with cooking oil.

2. Spray a non-stick skillet with cooking oil and place over medium heat. Cook the sandwiches for approximately 4 minutes per side, being careful not to burn them.

3. Cut each sandwich into quarters and serve 2 per person.

1/4 cup light aged cheddar cheese, thinly sliced
1/4 cup crumbled goat cheese
4 slices plum tomato
1/8 cup Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
4 slices wholegrain bread
4 slices sweet onion
