Grilled Cheese with Red Onion, Cherry Tomato & Irish Cheddar Cheese

Grilled Cheese with Irish Cheddar Cheese
Grilled Cheese with Red Onion, Cherry Tomato and Irish Cheddar Cheese is my absolute favorite grilled cheese sandwich. If you've got a craving for comfort food you absolutely must try this recipe on for size and if you have tomato soup to go with it, even better!

Grilled Cheese Sandwich Ingredients (makes 2 sandwiches)
  • 4 slices of whole wheat bread
  • Thinly sliced Irish cheddar cheese
  • 4-6 slices of cherry tomatoes
  • 4 Tbs. of chopped red onion
  • Butter

Grilled Cheese Preparation
  1. Place 2 slices of the whole wheat bread on a flat surface, divide half of the Irish cheddar cheese among the slices. Top the cheese evenly with the cherry tomatoes and onion.
  2. Place the 2 remaining slices of bread on top to make two sandwiches. Butter the top of the bread using half of the butter.
  3. Preheat a pan on medium-low heat. Place the sandwiches in the pan, butter-side down (may need to do in batches) and cook until lightly golden brown.
  4. Spread the remaining butter on the bread facing up, then flip and continue cooking until the bottom is golden brown and the cheese has melted.



  1. Oh my gawd that looks beyond amazing!!

  2. I only just discovered the joys of this method, with cheese only. This is an ideal improvement, top marks.

  3. This is such a good way of making the classic! Wholewheat bread makes it taste better too, in my opinion :)
