I’m a hopeless romantic when it comes to this tomato chutney grilled cheese sandwich. When hankering for a grilled cheese, I dream of biting into the perfectly crusty and crispy sandwich that oozes out plenty of cheesy love.Tomato Chutney Grilled Cheese Sandwich Recipe | White On Rice Couple (1)

Tomato Chutney Grilled Cheese

Those close to me know that I fiercely embrace savory, hearty and cheesy comfort foods. Grilled cheese sandwiches are no exception when it comes to making me happy, giggly and oh so full of joy.

The variations of great grilled cheese sandwiches are endless. I’ve seen some crazy concoctions when it comes to slapping something between two pieces of bread and some cheese. But the grilled cheese recipes I’m most drawn to are the ones that focus on a great bread, a perfect melting cheese and one more element that will balance and heighten the eating experience without distracting from the simplicity of the sandwich.

One of my answers to this roster of great grilled cheese sandwiches is a well made tomato chutney. I’m rather particular with my tomato chutneys because I don’t like them too sugary sweet. What I do love about a great tomato chutney recipe is the perfect balance of tang, zest, sweet and acidic tomato flavor.

Adding the wonderful flavor of tomato chutney to a warm grilled cheese sandwich makes the sandwich extra flavorful, balanced and zesty.

Although Summer might be officially over, our garden tomatoes tell us quite the opposite. Our wacky tomato bounty is telling us that they’re not ready for Summer to end and honestly, I have absolutely no problem with that.

If our tomatoes say that there’s still time to eat and make tomato recipes, then I’m all over it. Puppy Lexi is all over it too when it comes to helping me pick garden tomatoes. Well, she loves playing with the tomatoes like toys and not really loving the harvesting part.

Combining my craving for a great grilled cheese sandwich and an abundance of tomatoes, I decided to make a huge batch of tomato chutney to savor over the next few weeks. When we asked all you amazing readers for tomato recipes, you all inspired us tremendously with your advice. Thank you for all that, you amazing people!

Liz from Liz the Chef came to the rescue with her tomato chutney recipe. She’s mentioned it a few times to us before about how much she loves her tomato chutney. So to start with her tomato chutney recipe in hand, I made an incredibly delicious batch to eat with my grilled cheese sandwiches for the next few months. Thanks Liz!

    I made a grilled cheese sandwich with tomato chutney based off this recommendation, and it was delicious! Thanks for the great idea. I used a sourdough loaf with Kalamata olives, jalapeno jack cheese, and Sukhi’s brand tomato chutney. The chutney tastes like gourmet ketchup, very flavorful without being overbearing like some chutneys.

    Finally the weather warms up enough over here and I have spotted a few gorgeous bunch of tomatoes. Seductively red and glistening like jewels! Have consumed an insane amount of tomato sandwiches and slow roasted tomatoes. Now turning them into chutney? Genius. And I do like mine extra hot. :{

    Chutney is one of my favorite parts about going to Indian restaurants. I absolutely adore all the ethnic sauces. I don’t think I’ve ever had a tomato chutney and yours looks fabulous! Even better – it’s on a grilled cheese sandwich! Awesome thinking!

    What a beautiful combination! I’ve never made a grilled cheese sandwich surprisingly, but this one is worth trying!

    I believe that grilled cheese sandwich is simple yet serves its purpose: to feed one’s tummy, be delicious treat, and celebrate the beauty of bread. Adding tomato chutney is a brilliant idea! Thanks for sharing! Now, I have to find great quality tomatoes to make a jar of it. Thank you for sharing the recipe!

    It looks just gorgeuos!!! I have to try that tomato chutney. I had tried something similar with tomato jam, but this looks even more tasteful 🙂
    Just one question, once made, for how long does it last??

      Shiba-Rita : I made it about 3 weeks ago and it’s still good . But if you anticipate to store it for longer, I would suggest hot bathing it to preserve it longer.

      • Siba-Rita September 11, 2012 @ 2:55 pm

        Great, I didn’t expect it to last for that long. I’ll have to try then and store some while it’s still hot, in sterilized jars and keep it upside down to avoid air penetrating 🙂

    Just made roasted tomatoes with my latest harvest…and they are like candy! You are right that they would be a welcome addition to a grilled cheese. I’ll have lots more still, so perhaps I’ll try your Chutney recipe next!

    Grilled cheese sandwiches are my fallback lunch in the weekends when I am home. Bread and cheese are always available in our house.
