|Grilled cheese with tomato on Bacon Bread|
So, for me, the problem with using tomato slices in a sandwich such as this is the water content in the tomatoes. If there is too much water in the tomatoes, the liquid will mix with the melted cheese, and make a runny mess that may make the bread soggy, and interfere with that great crunch you want to have. The solution is simple- take your tomato slices and put them on a hot grill for a few minutes on each side. Let the grill cook off most of the water- the tomatoes will soften almost to the point of falling apart, and probably start to develop a little brown color, which helps with depth of flavor as well.
