  1. 4 1/4-inch-thick rounds provolone cheese
  2. 1 medium tomato (about 8 oz.), cored and cut into small dice
  3. 1 small clove garlic, minced
  4. 1 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
  5. 1 tsp. chopped fresh marjoram or oregano
  6. Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  7. 1 tsp. balsamic vinegar
  8. Position a rack in the center of the oven and heat the oven to 450°F.

  9. Arrange four 5- to 6-inch individual shallow gratin dishes on a rimmed baking sheet. Put 1 round of provolone in each dish.

  10. 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.

  11. Drizzle each serving with 1/4 tsp. of the balsamic vinegar and serve immediately.
