Gourmet Grilled Cheese with Heirloom Tomatoes 4 5 0

Whether it's a balmy, summer evening or a blustery, winter's day, I love grilled cheese, especially gourmet grilled cheese. Sometimes just cheese is good enough, but this particular evening I needed something more, hence the gourmet in gourmet grilled cheese. As luck would have it some heirloom tomatoes were hanging out on my counter (*the fridge can change both the taste and textures of tomatoes, and not in a good way...). Heirloom tomatoes are a great way of making any dish "gourmet". Their bright colors and sweeter taste can make almost any recipe a rockstar. With Havarti cheese as a partner, you're in for a real treat when you bite into this delightful gourmet grilled cheese.
