    As I was making a single serving, I toasted the bread in the toaster. As written, it's good but I think some fresh basil and a sprinkle of cheese would make it outstanding. Anyway, thanks, Brenda!  -  24 Jun 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Add some fresh grated parmesean cheese right before serving...can also add a little diced scallion.  -  24 Oct 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This definitely was "E-Z" and gives toast and tomatoes a nice Italian twist! This is very easy to adjust to suite your personal tastes. I opted out of the butter and drizzled a little olive oil on the bread. I also added fresh basil and Parmesan cheese. Next time I might use fresh mozzarella and a splash of balsamic vinegar - delish!  -  18 Sep 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
