This is so simple, I have extra bacon already fried up & ready in the fridge to get at faster. It is nice when you have an abundance of tomatoes from your garden or someone elses.
- 1 slice bread, toasted very lightly
- 3 slices cheese (your choice)
- bacon, broke into pieces
- sliced tomatoes
- Toast bread.
- Place bacon on top.
- Then tomatoes.
- Now cheese.
- Toast in toaster oven or microwave.
- You may put the ingredients on differently after you get the hang of them-- darn I don't have any bacon!
In our family, we reverse the order... bread, cheese, tomatoes, and bacon on top (pre-cook bacon or it will burn when broiling)... then broil (low broil) for 5 or so mins until bacon is crisped and cheese is melting. We call these "Cheese Dreams" ... technically an open-face broiled sandwich... but it's been a family extra favorite for 50+ years!
I first made this using 7-grain toast and swiss cheese and popped it under the broiler to melt the cheese. I found this to be a bit dry. Then, I tried it with an herbed cream cheese spread on the toast prior to placing the bacon and tomatoes on top and broiling just a bit. This was much better. It is an easy snack that can be adjusted to personal tastes.
