Made this without the sugar and used gorganzola instead of blue cheese. It was delicious.
I wanted a quick supper, and not having fresh bread crumbs or wanting to try to make some I made this my way. Spread butter on 2 slices of sourdough bread, top with tomatoes,salt,pepper then cheese. I broiled until cheese melted and bread was crisp. I will be making this often or until I am out of garden tomatoes. Thanks for the recipe.
I enjoyed this inspirational recipe. I did make a few changes, though. I used garlic and herb infused olive oil instead of butter. I also used feta cheese instead of blue. I bet goat cheese would be good, too! Broiling 1 minute left my tomatoes still hard and crumbs barely toasted, so I did 3 minutes under the broiler and then baked them at 375 for 5 minutes to soften the tomatoes. Thank you for a tempting recipe. It was a delicious lunch.
