  • 1 roma (plum) tomato, thinly sliced

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 1 teaspoon spicy brown mustard

  • 1 cup fresh spinach, or to taste

  • 4 slices part-skim mozzarella cheese

  1. Preheat a waffle iron according to manufacturer's instructions.

  2. Arrange tomato slices on a work surface, pouring off any excess juice. Season tomato slices with salt and pepper.

  3. Spread 1/2 teaspoon butter onto 1 side of each bread slice. Lay 1 bread slice, butter-side down, in the hot waffle iron. Spread 1/2 teaspoon mustard onto bread slice in waffle iron; top with 1/4 cup spinach, 2 slices mozzarella cheese, 1 teaspoon onion, half the tomato slices, and 1/4 cup spinach, respectively. Lay 1 slice bread, butter-side up, atop the spinach layer.
