As much as I want to say Jon and I were experimenting and "accidentally" put together this "non-traditional" grilled cheese sandwich, I gotta give credit to the lady herself, good ol' Oprah. On the Oprah's Sandwich Showdown episode, her bff Gayle travels across the US of A to taste test Esquire magazine's compilation of the best sandwiches in the country.
Jon and I being the foodie couple that we are, wanted to replicate Greg Rayner's version of grilled cheese that he serves at Cafe Muse in Royal Oak, Michigan. The secret ingredients we used were havarti cheese and organic basil, tomatoes and honey. Try it - you will see why it made the list!
Slice up the tomatoes
Butter your bread
Add the cheese, basil and tomato
