Back of 'Wich of the Week: Honey-Basil Grilled Cheese When it comes to American comfort foods, it's hard to beat the classic grilled cheese sandwich. Clearly, I'm not the only one who thinks so, since April is Grilled Cheese Month, and this Sunday is Grilled Cheese Day. For this week's 'wich, I decided to celebrate early with a tasty twist on the old favorite. For this version, which features creamy mozzarella and salty fontina, I recommend choosing a multigrain or wheat bread that's just a tiny bit sweet. It makes the perfect enclosure to a fresh, but decadent combination of sweet strawberry tomatoes, basil, and honey. For the recipe and step-by-step photos, . Honey-Basil Grilled Cheese Original Recipe Ingredients4 slices multigrain bread (I used Vital Vittles 12-Grain) 6 strawberry tomatoes, thinly sliced 3 oz. part-skim mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced with a sharp knife 10 slices fontina cheese, cut with a cheese slicer 12 to 16 large basil leaves Honey to taste Butter (to coat bread for grilling) DirectionsMakes two sandwiches. To make each sandwich, spread one side of each slice of bread with desired amount of butter. On the opposite side of two of the slices, spread a generous amount of honey, just enough to cover the surface. Divide the tomatoes between the two sandwiches and arrange the slices on top of the honey. Then, lay four slices of fontina cheese on top of each tomato-topped slice. Divide the basil leaves between the two sandwiches and lay atop the fontina. Then top each basil-covered slice with the sliced mozzarella. Top with remaining bread slices, butter side up. Over very low heat, preheat a skillet then grill the sandwiches one at a time. To ensure the cheese melts evenly, cover the skillet with a lid while cooking. Grill each side for about 3 to 5 minutes, until lightly browned.
