Looking for a grilled cheese that is a step above the rest? Then try out this gourmet take on the classic grilled cheese sandwich. This sandwich really should feed two. I cut it in half and was full after finishing one half. The only thing I may change the next time I make this guy is sauteing some white onion and using it in place of the green onion. Zo however liked it just the way it was.

5 Cherry tomatoes (sliced in half)
1/4 cup Monterey Jack Cheese (shredded)
1/4 cup Cheddar cheese (shredded)
1 tbsp Cream cheese
1 green onion (diced)
1 tsp fresh cilantro (chopped)
1 tsp fresh basil (chopped)
2 tsp Brummel and Brown
2 slices of multi grain sourdough

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Mix cheeses, onion, cilantro and basil together in a small bowl. Spread half of mixture onto each slice of bread. Place tomato halves onto one slice of bread and then place other slice of bread to form sandwich. Spread 1 tsp of Brummel of brown onto bread and then lay sandwich butter side down on to cooking sheet. Spread 1 tsp of Brummel and brown on slice of bread facing up. Place in oven and cook for 6-7 minutes. Flip using a spatula and cook for an additional 6-7 minutes.

Remove from oven and let cool 3-5 minutes. Slice in half to serve.
