An Amazing Open Face Gruyere Grilled Cheese and Tomato Sandwich

5 Comments

I'm not a huge bread person.

When it comes to sandwiches that is.

I can gobble up fresh bread right out of the oven, with a slathering of butter on top, in no time.
A fresh wheat roll with some homemade honey butter is a wonderful way to get a meal started.

But, when it comes to sandwiches, sometimes an open sandwich is better than a sandwich with the usual two slices of bread.

Case in point, my open face Gruyere grilled cheese and tomato sandwich.

There is the time in a food 'appreciator's' life when you are ready to experience something wonderful beyond the basic.
When it comes to cheese, Gruyere is one of those times.

Gruyere cheese, aka Gruyère, is a hard yellow cheese, named after the town of Gruyères in Switzerland. Gruyere is a favorite for baking with. Gruyere has a sweet and salty taste that can also be a bit nutty.
Gruyere cheese is a bit more expensive than your regular cheese but, it isn't necessarily beyond reach. I like to think of Gruyere cheese as a special treat. If you want to impress someone, serve them something with some Gruyere cheese in it.

  4. The Gruyere cheese may be a little more expensive, but it is worth it. Especially for a cheese sandwich such as this. I agree that sometimes open faced sandwiches are more appealing.
