Wow! This takes a plain 'ol tomato sandwich to a whole new level with a nice Italian twist! I toasted some thick slices of Italian bread and added a bit of salt to the tomatoes. I decreased the amount of herbs in the mayo mixture a bit to taste. I also added some fresh basil over top of the tomatoes and a bit of mozzarella cheese along with the Parmesan. The balsamic marinade on the tomatoes really adds a nice tang to the sandwich - delish! Read More

This was ok.... needs meat. I like steak... so a nice thin cut or left over pot roast or something- ANYTHING would have made this much better. Next time I will add roast beef. Read More

A DEFINATE KEEPER! A so simple recipe that yields a so delicious sandwich! My only mods were adding 50% more of each herb salting the tomatos after marinading and adding more cheese for the "bubbly effect". EXCELLENT WITH CREAMY SOUP! and great for appetizers when served in bite sized pieces open-faced! AND THE MARINADE CAN BE EASILY CONVERTED INTO A NICE VINEGRETTE instead of having to throw it away or boil it. Read More

This is a terrific recipe. I made it in August when tomatos are at their peak flavor but I can see making it in the winter with fresh plum tomato. Also because it was summer I added fresh chopped herbs to the mayo mixture parsley rosemary and basil. As it was a poolside lunch I put the prepared sandwiches on a foil lined thick cookie sheet and put it on the grill and closd the lid for about 5 minutes. But broiling would give it a bubbly top. Also THICK DENSE bread is a MUST! And remember to toast the bread first. Thank you so much for this recipe my daughter the vegetarian even asked for the recipe. Read More

There isn't enough I can say about this recipe. I wish I could give it more stars!! I did change a few things due to not having them. I used Newmans Own Olive Oil and Vinegar (a salad dressing) instead of your sauce but it was close enough. I also used sliced american cheese. It was amazing! My mouth is still watering! And as for the mayo..gosh it was heavenly. I did add some garlic powder like a few others suggested which made it even better. When I put it in the oven I was already waiting for it to come out! It smelt great and was so good! I love it so much that I created an account here JUST to review it. Thank you so much for this mouthwatering recipe! Read More

Great recipe! I marinated thinly sliced red onion along with the tomatoes, used a little less of the Parmesan, and added a thin slice of Swiss cheese. Also, since my husband loves BLT's, added a few pre-cooked slices of bacon to his before adding the tomato/onion topping and the cheese -- he loved it!! Read More

These were fantastic!! The mayo/parmesan mixture is a must. What a great blend of flavors...I wish I had made more for myself. When I took it out from under the broiler there was quite a bit of liquid on top. I just soaked it up with a paper towel and it didn't compromise the taste at all. Next time I might try fat free mayo to cut down on the calories but other than that these were awesome. Two thumbs up kat!! Read More

Very tasty and quick! My husband and I loved the fresh taste. A good quality dense bread is a must. Next time will try a mixture of tomatoes and roasted red peppers. This recipe is a definite keeper! Read More

WOW! My wife about fell off the couch after she tasted these! All she could say was "mmmm...." followed by some mumbling as she enjoyed these tomato sandwiches. The only change was I used fresh multi-grain bread and fresh grated Parmesan. Excellent! We have made it twice in the past week! Read More

This recipe has become a staple for me in the past few months! It is so simple yet incredible. I make it for lunch serve it open faced as an appetizer and sometimes as part of dinner. The most important part is procuring the ripe tomatoes. If I can't find ripe tomatoes at my produce stand I won't make it. I slice them thick and only differ from the recipe in that I add a little garlic powder to the mayo spread and salt the tomato slices before adding the parm on top. This recipe is so good that you really should try it as is before you start throwing your own ideas in. I have impressed many a guest with this one. PERFECT! Read More
