  • 1
    Heat gas or charcoal grill. Cut six 15x12-inch sheets of nonstick foil. (DO NOT USE REGULAR FOIL.) Cut off rounded ends from loaf of bread. Cut loaf crosswise into 12 slices, each about 3/4-inch thick. Spread one side of each slice of bread with rounded teaspoon cream cheese.
  • 2
    For each sandwich, top 1 bread slice, cream cheese side up, with half slice of cheese, 1/6 of the turkey, 2 tomato slices, remaining half slice of cheese and second bread slice, cream cheese side down. Place sandwich on 1 foil sheet; wrap securely using double-fold seals, allowing room for heat expansion.
  • 3
    When grill is heated, place foil-wrapped sandwiches on gas grill over low heat or on charcoal grill 4 to 6 inches from low coals. Cover grill; cook 10 to 12 minutes or until cheese is melted and sandwiches are thoroughly heated, turning sandwiches over every 2 minutes. To serve, open wrapped sandwiches carefully to allow steam to escape.

Expert Tips

  • Plum tomatoes are used in this recipe because of their lower moisture content, which reduces the chance of the bread becoming soggy.
  • We have called for nonstick foil; any Cheddar cheese that melts out of the sandwich will stick to regular foil. If substituting regular foil, spray the foil with nonstick cooking spray.
  • A mixed green salad is the perfect complement to this grilled sandwich.
