Bacon, Tomato, & Cheese on Toast

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 3 mins

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.

Ingredients Nutrition

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.
