A simple tomato sandwich is one of life’s greatest pleasures, soft bread, juicy tomatoes, and a smear of mayonnaise. This version has taken a traditional old school favorite and given it an easy upgrade!

Sliced tomatoes sit on top of lightly toasted sour dough bread with in layers of cheese broiled to bubbly perfection.

Garnish with basil and a splash of a bright balsamic reduction for the perfect bite!

An Easy Snack

Tomato sandwiches are one of our favorite comfort foods, no doubt— but this recipe up-levels it by adding broiled tomatoes, toasting the bread, and melting the mozzarella and Parmesan cheese.

BREAD Sourdough bread is my fave in this recipe but use any rustic or crusty bread (or even French bread).

TOMATOES We love Roma tomatoes because they hold up well to broiling without getting mushy. Honestly, any ripe tomato will be great in this recipe.

CHEESE Mozzarella goes perfectly with tomatoes. Shred it and pile it high!

GARNISH Fresh basil is a favorite (if you have to use dried, add it with the cheese before cooking). A balsamic drizzle or a splash of balsamic finishes this dish perfectly.

    • Try adding a slice of red onion or fresh sliced avocado
    • Swap out the bread for crostini and serve as an appetizer
    • Turn these open-faced sandwiches into a hearty meal by adding grilled chicken or even poached eggs.
