Epicurean Kentuckian: Sandwich restores her faith in humanity

The Bacon & Tomato on Grilled Cheese. Tomato: Heirloom from Bruce Wilson's Garden
'Yes, tomatoes are a gift from God! Organically grown, heirloom varieties are highly encouraged. You usually don't get perfect-looking red balls, but that IS the perfection of them- they were not bred in a lab, designed to be shipped to groceries. They are lop-sided, tender, and bruise easily, but they are SO delicious.' - TAMI WILSON

Re: bacon and tomato on grilled cheese:

Yes, I've also been eating haloumi cheese, aka "grilling cheese." I slice it into strips about a quarter-inch thick, then put them in a cast-iron skillet heated with a thin coat of oil. It "grills" directly on the surface of the pan, and develops a golden, caramelized crust on the cheese itself.


Eaten with some prize-worthy heirloom tomatoes from my dad's garden that have been rubbed with a clove of garlic and a scattering of salt, it's so good that it brought tears to my eyes, and restored my faith in humanity!
