Grilled Cheese with Slow-Roasted Tomatoes, Bacon, and Chipotle Mayo Recipe

There are those recipes that are inspired by the places we’ve traveled “souvenir-recipes,” the meals we’ve eaten, but then those recipes that are home. They’re a comfort food so good we could make them at the first sign of homesickness and all is well. Lately, when it happens, we cuddle under a blanket, open a bottle of wine, and cook this over-the-top Grilled Cheese with Slow-Roasted Tomatoes, Bacon, and Chipotle Mayo recipe.

Now, go stock up on all your cooking essentials, then head into the kitchen, make this, and share it with us by tagging @saltandwind and #swsociety on social!

Servings 2 Sandwiches

Ingredients
  

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter

    room temperature

  • 4 slices sourdough bread
  • 2 tablespoons good-quality mayonnaise
  • Chipotle en adobo sauce or chipotle purée
  • 4 ounces Jack cheese

    or mozzarella, thinly sliced

  • 4 slices cooked bacon
  • Slow-roasted tomatoes

    storebought or homemade

Instructions
 

  • Spread the butter on the one side of each slice of bread. Mix together some of the chipotle en adobo sauce (start with just a teeny bit) and mayo and taste. Add more chipotle for more heat. Assemble a sandwich: Spread mayo mixture on the unbuttered side of one piece of bread then layer a quarter of the cheese, half the bacon, a spoonful of the tomatoes and the remaining cheese. Close and repeat with the second sandwich. 
  • Heat a large cast iron pan over medium heat. Place the sandwiches in the pan, and cook undisturbed until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Carefully flip and cook on the second side until golden brown and the cheese is melted. Serve with tomato soup, if desired.
