Now the tomatoes are ripening up so beautifully, and what could be better than the old simple tomato sandwich. When I was a kid, I would just slice tomatoes and put them between 2 pieces of bread slathered with mayo.
Recently I came across a recipe for a broiled tomato sandwich. What a great idea! It is so simple also, but should only be attempted with fresh, ripe tomatoes.
- Slices of bread
- 3 Tbl of Mayonaisse
- 1 tsp dry oregano
- 1/2 cup of shredded parmesan cheese
- Slices of tomato
- balsamic glaze or a mixture of one part balsamic vinegar to one part olive oil
Then place your slices on a baking sheet and place your tomatoes on the bread. (The original recipe calls for marinating the tomatoes in one part vinegar to one part oil.) I chose not to do that because I have balsamic glaze, which makes the sandwich less soggy.
After your tomato slices are on the bread, top with more parmesan cheese.
Finally place the baking sheet in your broiler to melt the cheese. In my oven it only took 2 minutes.
When the cheese is melted, take your balsamic glaze and drizzle it over your tomatoes. Absolutely delicious and simple.
