When cool, cut bacon into 1-inch pieces.

Make tomato shallot jam

Heat a large non-stick pan over medium. When hot, add 1/2 tbsp oil, then shallot. Cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 2-3 min. Add tomatoes, vinegar, 2 tbsp water and 1 tsp sugar. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tomatoes break down and jam thickens, 4-5 min. (TIP: Use a fork to help break down tomatoes!). Stir in half the chives.Season with salt and pepper, to taste.Transfer tomato shallot jam to a small bowl, then carefully wipe the pan clean.

Place another large, heavy-bottomed pan over top of sandwiches. Cook until golden brown and cheese has melted, 3-4 min per side. Halve sandwiches, then divide between plates.
