Roasted Garlic Grilled Cheese is a hearty hot sandwich made with artisan bread, a roasted garlic spread, two kinds of cheese, tomato, and bacon.
Preheat the oven to 400°F.
Trim about ¼ inch off the top of the heads of garlic, exposing the cloves inside.
Place garlic in the center of an 8-inch square of aluminum foil.
Place garlic in a small bowl and mash with a fork until the garlic forms a paste.
In a medium bowl, add butter, parsley, salt, and 2 teaspoons of mashed garlic paste.
Generously spread garlic butter on one side of a slice of bread. Flip over the slice of bread and spread a quarter of the remaining mashed garlic paste.
In a pan over medium-low heat, add bread (butter side down), ¼ cup of the gruyere cheese, 2 slices of tomato, 2 slices of bacon, and ¼ cup of the mozzarella cheese.
Cook over medium-low heat for 5-7 minutes; then, flip over the sandwich and cook another 5-7 minutes, or until golden brown. (If it seems like the bread is taking a long time to brown, be patient, as the cheese inside needs time to melt.)
Remove the sandwich from the pan and repeat with the remaining ingredients. (As an option, immediately after removing from the pan, sprinkle additional salt onto the outside of each slice of bread.) Serve warm.
