Broiled Tomatoes with Mozzarella

It’s like pizza without the crust!

Mmm, you’re hungry now, aren’t you? It really is prep to table in less than 10 minutes. Great for appetizers, midday snack, or a side dish!  Pairs beautifully with chicken. This dish is a bit nostalgic for me, as my mom and dad used to make it a lot in my house when I was growing up!

Use as many tomatoes and as much cheese as you’d like!  I would stay away from sprinkling too much salt though, since you can always add more! With salt, less is always more. Try different cheeses like cheddar, goat, feta, etc. Also, try different spices like parsley, oregano, thyme, basil, Italian seasonings, or rosemary!

1. Turn your broiler on high. Line a baking sheet with tin foil.

2. Wash and dry your tomatoes.  Cut into 1/4″-1/2″ slices and line on your baking sheet.

3. Put as much cheese as you see fit on top of each slice of tomato! Drizzle lightly with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and seasonings.

4. Place in oven for 5 minutes. Check them. Take your tray out when the cheese looks nice and toasty!  (Unless you’re using a cheese like feta or goat that will not look toasty.  Then I would take out of the oven in 7-8 minutes.)

Enjoy!  Let me know what different combos of cheese and seasonings you come up with!

Keep it classy,
