Ms. Leanna's Tomato Toast!

Do you know what you are going to have for lunch today?

Here’s an idea!  Let’s have Ms. Leanna’s tomato toast! Yummy!  It's simple, tasty, and fast! I bet your mouth is already watering!

First off, you will need a few basic ingredients. 
1. One or two slices of bread (sourdough is my favorite)
2. Red, ripe, yummy tomatoes
3. Cheese (you can choose cheddar cheese, mozzarella cheese, or parmesan cheese)
4. A little butter or margarine

That’s it!  Only four ingredients!  It’s so simple!

Now, lightly butter the front and back of your bread.  Butter or margarine really adds to the flavor so you can use a little or more if you prefer.

You can either chop up your tomatoes into chunks or you can use slices of tomato.  But please remember to ask for help in slicing the tomatoes.  A knife can be very dangerous!

Once you have your tomatoes cut, either sprinkle the tomato chunks over the buttered bread, or lay the slices of cut tomato over the buttered bread.  You can add a little salt and pepper if you like.

Now comes my favorite part - cheese!  You can use as much cheese as you’d like!  Go ahead and sprinkle the cheese over the tomatoes!  Yum, yum!  You might even sneak a few bites of cheese while you sprinkle!  I love cheese!

Finish off your tomato toast with a little parmesan cheese sprinkled over the top!  Now you’re ready to toast!

You can use a toaster oven or, if you don’t have a toaster oven, you can use a regular oven.  Now, here is a very important step in making your “Ms. Leanna’s Tomato Toast!”  First, you toast the tomato toast using the BAKING setting on your oven.  Then, you switch the oven setting to BROIL for only a FEW SECONDS so the cheese starts to bubble and turns to a golden brownish color.
