Grilled cheese sandwiches with gooey melted cheese, summer roasted tomatoes, fresh basil and crispy buttery bread slices are a great choice for breakfast or lunch  whenever you want something quick, satisfying and delicious. Summer roasted tomatoes are flavorful and are a great choice for filling these sandwiches and create unique and impressive sandwiches.

Roasting the tomatoes gets the best out of them, as the tomato flavor is enhanced and makes a great way to enjoy their sweet, rich, summery flavor.

You can always create your grilled cheese sandwich with different fillings or simple, with nothing else but cheese, what remains the same is the way of preparing them. Use generous amount of soften butter spread directly on the bread not on the pan, grated cheese like cheddar cheese, mozzarella that melts and makes gooey grilled sandwiches and use a hot nonstick pan to cook on both sides until sides are crispy, golden brown and cheese melted. Enjoy!
