    Pets'R'us's Note:

    I love the combination of tomato and cheese. The short marination of the tomatoes in the olive oil and the balsamic vinegar gives it a nice kick. Other vinegar is not as nice. If I have it in the fridge I add an extra topping of mozzarella and you can please the meat eaters by adding slices of crunchy bacon. You can make it a closed sandwich by just toasting 4 more slices of bread to top the sandwich.

      This made a nice lunch, with good flavors. I think most of the pictures were taken with cheeses other than parmesan. We grated fresh parmesan and didn't get any of the bubbling/melting - but they were still quite good. I had some leftover caramelized onions that I added to some of these, and that made them even yummier.

      These were out of this world delicious! I had cut the tomatoes in the morning and used a good balsamic vinegar and good olive oil and marinated them until lunch time. I think using a good quality makes a difference for the taste, in my opinion anyway. Mixed up the mayo mixture and then brought everything to work to finish off there for lunch. I used fresh basil. Then I mixed a bit of mozzarella with the parmesan for the top with a bit more basil. I used the broil on low and it turned out fantastic. Thanks for sharing this yummy recipe Pets'R'us

      Oh my goodness! This is AMAZING!!! Quite a treat! I only made half the recipe and I wish I had made more (and it was just for me!!!) I used light mayo, fresh torn basil and added a bit of rosemary and more basil on top! Thanks for this great sandwich that I will eat again and again! Thanks for posting!
