Sharing is caring!

New month, new set of themes by our BM Groups. So this week I choose to make Easy Breakfast Dishes. This is my second post on this series, my earlier one was Semolina and Vermicelli Instant Idli (Steamed Cakes) ~ Rava & Sevai Instant Idli and today I am sharing one of my lavish breakfast on days, yes I say it lavish with all the cheese I add into this but once in a while love to. We both love chili cheese sandwich or toasted sandwich once in a while. Few years back, this used to be our favorite every 15 days just the toppings were different.

This year I grew cherry tomatoes, and they too a while to come and we were eagerly waiting for our tomatoes to grow and finally for them to rope, and now they are , it’s like every week I am having am abundance of fresh organic cherry tomatoes. Some fresh cherry tomatoes form my garden.

and the bigger one..

So what when it is raining tomatoes I thought of making our favorite open Cheese Tomato grilled sandwich and for the kids the name is Bread Pizza…:-))….shhhh….who can say no to pizza…

Open Faced Grilled Cheese with Tomato | Bread Pizza

The recipe is quite simple, I simply first toast the bread on one side and in the meantime chop the tomatoes into 4 pieces, add some feta cheese or paneer(optional) , some herbs, black pepper, salt and a drizzle of olive oil. That’s it, top this mixture on the toasted bread slices with some mozzarella cheese and back into oven or in a pan and grill for 5 mins, just until the cheese melts. Yummy breakfast is done in 20-30 minutes flat.

That is such a simple and delicious sandwich. My cheese loving son would devour this. Those garden fresh tomatoes look awesome.
