Simple Advent Sandwiches: Part 3 Spiced Up Grilled Cheese
I love grilled cheese sandwiches. This is an extra-special recipe for them. You can make the spread a day or two in advance, and then making the sandwiches is all that simpler!
Spiced-Up Grilled Cheese
For the spread, blend together the following:
1 6-oz can tomato paste
3 T. chopped canned chipotle chilies (If you opened a fresh can, put the rest of the can in a zip-lock bag and freeze it for later use.)
1 T. molasses
Spread on 12 slices of bread, sourdough preferred.
On top of half the bread, place the following (divided, of course):
18 oz. extra-sharp cheddar cheese, thinly sliced
4 plum tomatoes, cut into 1/4” slices
1 small red onion, thinly sliced
1 C. fresh cilantro leaves
Top with remaining bread, sauce side down. Spread butter on both sides of the sandwiches and grill on a griddle or non-stick pan until the cheese is melted, about 5 minutes per side.
