Saturday Lunch: Tomato Grilled Cheese

My family's classic Saturday lunch is grilled cheese.  So healthy, right?  No, but delicious.

So here is my slightly more gourmet version.  Emphasis on "slightly."

You'll Need:
- 1 large slice of "good" bread, I used sourdough
- 2-3 slices of white American cheese, or any kind you like
- 1 large slice of tomato
- 1/2 tablespoon margarine
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1/2 dill pickle
- 1 skillet


Cut your slice of bread in half and spread the margarine evenly over the sides that will make contact with the pan.


Layer 1 slice of cheese on the bread. Then, a slice of tomato and the rest of the cheese.


Put the vegetable oil in the skillet and heat it up over a medium flame.  Once it is hot, place the assembled sandwich, margarine side down, in the skillet.


While the first side is cooking, (1-2 minutes, depending on how hot your pan is) break out the dills and slice one thinly to top the sandwich.


Flip the sandwich and cook until the cheese is nice and melty and the bread is golden brown.


Take it out of the pan, add the pickles and eat it!

Fact of the Matter:  Simple recipes are my favorite.
