Broiled Tomato Sandwich

Broiled Tomato Sandwich, an Italian Summer Sandwich, goes great alongside your favorite soup.

Broiled Tomato Sandwich

2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 ripe tomatoes, sliced
3 Tbsp mayonnaise
1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
1/4 tsp black pepper
grated parmesan cheese
4 slices bread, lightly toasted


  1. Preheat oven to broil.
  2. In a shallow bowl, whisk together the olive oil and vinegar. Marinate the tomatoes in the mixture, stirring occasionally.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, Italian seasoning, black pepper and 4 teaspoons Parmesan cheese. Spread mixture on one side of each slice of toasted bread.
  4. Place marinated tomatoes on 2 slices and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
  5. Place on a baking sheet and broil for 5 minutes, or until cheese turns golden brown. Serve immediately, open faced or closed.

This great summer sandwich is so delicious, it is a great sandwich to eat alongside a soup. I used Ezekial bread and Organic Mayonnaise, you could also use an eggless mayo and some soy cheese and make this a vegan sandwich. This sandwich is quick, simple, light and refreshing and loaded with flavor, Give it a try!

I have also included a little bonus for you all…My 4 year old son has jumped on the bandwagon of taking pictures of his food, hey maybe he will have HIS own food blog soon:) Whatcha think?

    I think your son’s pic is my favorite. Blogging does become something of a family project, doesn’t it? My boys love to help in the kitchen now, especially with baking, and I let them snap pics with my iPhone of all our developments in the garden. When I started our blog, my husband just rolled his eyes. Now he is definitely on board, and complains that I haven’t put his pic on the home page. I told him he’s still on probation…
