  • In a small saucepan, combine the raisins, wine, brown sugar, tomatoes, Worcestershire sauce, basil and cayenne pepper. Simmer over medium-low heat for 10 minutes.

  • In a large skillet, melt butter. Toss the bread cubes in the butter to coat, then toss with Monterey Jack cheese, and transfer to the prepared baking dish. Pour the tomato mixture over the bread.

  • Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the top is nicely toasted.

This was an excellent side dish. It was easy to prepare and was fast. I used dried basil since fresh was not available. I didn't have Zinfadel so I added water. It was good. I think a good provolone cheese would be good also. Read More

Although this smelled pretty good fresh out of the oven once I tasted it I was really reluctant to serve it up. The basil/wine/raisin combination doesn't work at all and all the Worcestershire sauce does is added an unpleasant aftertaste. Thanks anyway. Read More

Perhaps I did something wrong or perhaps the recipe was just not to my taste. It was too sweet for me (even after omitting the raisins) and just not a pleasing combo. Read More

If you enjoy your grilled cheese sandwiches dipped into tomato soup you'll love this. I used chix broth instead of wine. I look forward to having this again. Read More

I used fresh tomatoes because I had a lot of garden tomatoes. I also used dried basil. Next time I may use something other than raisins maybe tomatoes Read More

I really like the overall flavor of this. I used like a month old ciabatta bread so it was very hard and crispy. I added about a cup of milk to help soften the bread in fear that it would be baked even harder. It turned out good. For next time I think I might add a little more raisin and maybe some sausage? or prochiutto? Read More
