Dad's Open-faced Broiled Tomato Sandwich

By Gail Foley

One of my earlier memories of my father is of his tomato garden. He would grow these large Beefsteak tomatoes - most often Big Boys. This is what he made with the first ripe tomatoes.

1 slice Bread
1 slice American Cheese
1 slice of a large fresh Tomato
Malt vinegar
Ground black pepper

Preheat oven broiler.
Lightly coat a small sheet of aluminum foil with canola oil spray.
Assemble sandwich on foil – Lay down bread, then cheese, then tomato.
Put under broiler, a couple of inches from flame. Watch it carefully!
When cheese is browned, remove from broiler to plate.
Sprinkle with malt vinegar and pepper.

It is easier to eat with a fork, but have some fun trying to pick it up and eat it like a sandwich!

I should note that Dad's bread of choice was Wonder Bread. I favor a heartier bread and would recommend Sourdough, Italian or French bread. I have also liked it on various wheat breads.
