This was great. Nice quick meal especially for one or two people. The cayenne pepper was a bit too much for me so I would cut it back by half.

Delicious. I used whole wheat bread and omitted the pepper. It took 4 minutes to broil without burning. Will definitely have this again. Volunteer Field Editor

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!

I've made similar things before but on bread. The onion bagel added a great flavor!

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!
