"This is soooo tasty! My mom made this for us as a summer snack when we had so many extra tomatoes from the garden. We still use this in the summer w/ fresh basil and so yummy. Funny how tastes and smells bring back such delightful thoughts of days gone by!"

"Made this type for years only using sandwich bread, sliced cheese, tomato & parmesan cheese. Whatever bread type you prefer. Broil until cheese is bubbly. Delicious!"
