Cheesy Tomato Bread

Wondering what to have for lunch today? Here’s my old standby.
Cheese and Tomatoes on Sourdough toast. Mmmm.

It’s simple, tasty, and fast. Nothing you can’t figure out (or haven’t done already) but if your mouth is watering, here are the quick steps.

First off, one should always have a loaf of sourdough in the house. Mandatory rule for um, life? Okay, over-dramatic. But you know, kind of true. I really should get around to making my own; especially after Delia posted this last week. Sometime soon.

So whether your sourdough is store-bought or homemade, grab a slice and start decorating.

Ingredients:
• Mozzarella Cheese
• Fresh Tomatoes (sliced or diced)
• Parmesan Cheese

Instructions:
– Lightly butter the front and back of your bread.
– Sprinkle and spread diced tomatoes on top, then sprinkle with salt and pepper.
– Add the mozzarella on top (and be liberal!)
– Finish it off with Parmesan Cheese and you’re ready to toast.

I prefer using the Toaster Oven because it’s small and uses less energy for one little piece of bread.  If you’re making a large batch though use the conventional oven.

Now the KEY here is to first toast the bread and then broil the top
(If you just toast, the cheese doesn’t brown enough on top. And if you just broil, the bottom of the toast is soggy. So do both).

Toast the bread for the normal time you would toast a slice of bread. Then flip your Toaster Oven to Broil and let the top get bubbly and brown. No time frame here; just broil to your liking. And you’re done!
