  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish, or one of similar size.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.

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.

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.

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.

Absolutely devine recipe! The combination of flavors was outstanding. I think it is even going to be better in the morning. Beautiful presentation.

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,

Too dry. Might work if you don't drain the tomatoes
