Grilled Cheese on the Grill

The tastiest grilled-cheese sandwiches aren't prepared in the kitchen in a frying pan. They're made on a grill.
Martha Stewart Living, September 1998

Grilled Cheese How-To

Preheat grill or grill pan until hot. Cook several strips of bacon in an oven. Slice bread, cheese (we made ours with New York cheddar), and tomatoes -- the juiciest ones of the season. Lightly butter one side of each of two pieces of bread.

Lay bread slices, buttered sides down, on a plate. Top both with cheese, and add tomatoes to one. Place bread on the grill, buttered side down; cover. Grill until the cheese has melted, about two minutes. Remove sandwich halves from grill. Add the bacon. Season with salt and pepper. Put the sandwich halves together, and serve.

    I think I would do my bacon on the stovetop. It makes my kitchen way too hot to use the oven just to cook bacon in the summer.
