Time is of the essence

With time being so limited we must find ways to prepare foods that we enjoy and that won't take up a lot of time preparing and most of all that are satisfying.

This dish can be prepared for snack or brunch and would fit nicely with a bowl of soup to complete a meal for dinner.

You might even try it on Hero bread loaf,slicing it open as you would to make a sandwich but instead add the cheese and tomatoes and broil. What a treat.

Be it Summer or winter this dish will go over well with everyone or just for you. Enjoy

Making life easier.

Some times you don't want to heat up the whole house just to prepare a simple meal. I look for ways to make my life go a little smoother with less hassle. My tomato and cheese on toast does just that.

There seems to be all types of cooking vessels and kitchen tools to help us make life easier. So I say go for it! The old way can be revised and your foods will taste just as good with a little practice.
