4 1/4-inch-thick rounds provolone cheese
1 medium tomato (about 8 oz.), cored and cut into small dice
1 small clove garlic, minced
1 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
1 tsp. chopped fresh marjoram or oregano
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 tsp. balsamic vinegar
Position a rack in the center of the oven and heat the oven to 450°F.
Arrange four 5- to 6-inch individual shallow gratin dishes on a rimmed baking sheet. Put 1 round of provolone in each dish.
In a small bowl, combine the tomato, garlic, oil, marjoram, 1/4 tsp. salt, and a few grinds of pepper. Divide the tomato mixture among the four gratin dishes, scattering it over and around the cheese. Bake until the cheese is slightly melted, about 5 minutes.
Drizzle each serving with 1/4 tsp. of the balsamic vinegar and serve immediately.
