This grilled cheese is a great way to showcase ripe, juicy tomatoes. A flavored mayonnaise gets brushed onto the bread to impart flavor and help it crisp. Store any leftover in the fridge to use on other sandwiches or grilled fish.
Slice the ciabatta at a sharp angle to get interior slices, which toast beautifully.

This "Make it Tonight" dinner for two (#146) is an exceptional flavor surprise! If you have not tried this recipe yet don't wait much longer. The flavored mayo infuses the bread and creates the golden color just as illustrated. I twisted this recipe just a bit. Once the bread was toasted I tossed the tomato slices in the pan for just a moment on either side. Warmed them up just enough to help further melting of the already creamy brie and bring out the flavor of the basil. The Mayo part of this recipe did double duty for me. I created bacon, tomato, arugula and fried egg sandwiches for lunch the next day using the same method for pan toasting the ciabatta and added more mayo next to the bacon. Love this one!
Very simple, good stuff - the brie was a lovely texture melted, and the spicy mayo was very nice as well. super easy to make.
