Open Face Tomato and Cheese

This is such a simple recipe, but so very yummy! It is often enjoyed around here for lunch, although paired with a green salad makes a nice light supper as well.

To make four: I use four slices of bread. Homemade really improves the overall flavor of this, and of course if you can, use whole grain. I shred about 3/4 cup of mozzarella cheese. Slice 1-2 tomatoes depending on size. You will also need to prepare a mayo mixture of about: 2 tablespoons mayonnaise, and 1 teaspoon dried basil.

First spread a thin layer of the mayo mixture on each slice of bread. Then add sliced tomato, and top with cheese. Easy!

Next, bake on baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray, at about 400 degrees for about 10 minutes until cheese melts and is just turning golden.
