My Favorite Meal Of the Moment

This is the Tomato and Basil Sandwich with Cheese, on Fried Whole Grain French Style Bread. Be careful, sometimes I put just a bit too much olive oil in the saute pan, sometimes I use cream cheese, alot of it. Two pieces make one serving… just has to, because you need that second piece just to believe that it is as good…as it is.

Use 1/4 cup olive oil, 2 slices of bread, the heartier the better, 4 slices of tomato, 6 basil leaves in a chiffonade cut, and two slices of your favorite soft-ish cheese that works well with tomatoes: goat, cream cheese, jack or pepperjack, for instance.

Get the oil hot in a saute pan that the bread will fit into, fry bread for 2-3 minutes on each side, crunchy and golden. Take out of pan and place on serving plate. Put the cheese on, divide the chiffonade between them, place the tomatoes on top, add a bit of basil garnish. Eat before the bread loses it’s crunch.
