ripe tomatoes, sliced
grated Parmesan cheese, divided
bread, lightly toasted
Wow! This takes a plain 'ol tomato sandwich to a whole new level with a nice Italian twist! I toasted some thick slices of Italian bread and added a bit of salt to the tomatoes. I decreased the amount of herbs in the mayo mixture a bit to taste. I also added some fresh basil over top of the tomatoes and a bit of mozzarella cheese along with the Parmesan. The balsamic marinade on the tomatoes really adds a nice tang to the sandwich - delish!
This was ok.... needs meat. I like steak... so a nice thin cut or left over pot roast or something- ANYTHING would have made this much better. Next time I will add roast beef.
A DEFINATE KEEPER! A so simple recipe that yields a so delicious sandwich! My only mods were adding 50% more of each herb, salting the tomatos after marinading and adding more cheese for the "bubbly effect". EXCELLENT WITH CREAMY SOUP! and great for appetizers when served in bite sized pieces open-faced! AND THE MARINADE CAN BE EASILY CONVERTED INTO A NICE VINEGRETTE, instead of having to throw it away or boil it.
This is a terrific recipe. I made it in August when tomatos are at their peak flavor, but I can see making it in the winter with fresh plum tomato. Also because it was summer I added fresh chopped herbs to the mayo mixture, parsley, rosemary and basil. As it was a poolside lunch, I put the prepared sandwiches on a foil lined, thick cookie sheet and put it on the grill and closd the lid for about 5 minutes. But broiling would give it a bubbly top. Also, THICK DENSE bread is a MUST! And remember to toast the bread first. Thank you so much for this recipe, my daughter the vegetarian even asked for the recipe.
There isn't enough I can say about this recipe. I wish I could give it more stars!! I did change a few things due to not having them. I used Newmans Own Olive Oil and Vinegar (a salad dressing) instead of your sauce but it was close enough. I also used sliced american cheese. It was amazing! My mouth is still watering! And as for the mayo..gosh it was heavenly. I did add some garlic powder like a few others suggested which made it even better. When I put it in the oven I was already waiting for it to come out! It smelt great and was so good! I love it so much that I created an account here JUST to review it. Thank you so much for this mouthwatering recipe!
Great recipe! I marinated thinly sliced red onion along with the tomatoes, used a little less of the Parmesan, and added a thin slice of Swiss cheese. Also, since my husband loves BLT's, added a few pre-cooked slices of bacon to his before adding the tomato/onion topping and the cheese -- he loved it!!
These were fantastic!! The mayo/parmesan mixture is a must. What a great blend of flavors...I wish I had made more for myself. When I took it out from under the broiler, there was quite a bit of liquid on top. I just soaked it up with a paper towel and it didn't compromise the taste at all. Next time I might try fat free mayo to cut down on the calories, but other than that these were awesome. Two thumbs up kat!!
Very tasty and quick! My husband and I loved the fresh taste. A good quality, dense bread is a must. Next time will try a mixture of tomatoes and roasted red peppers. This recipe is a definite keeper!
