Makes 3 sandwiches

When their parents were away for the weekend, 19-year-old Dominique Ng and her sisters Madeline, 16, and Gabby, 12, survived nicely on these easy toasted sandwiches.

How to Make It

Step 1

Brush one side of each bread slice with olive oil. Place 3 slices, oil side down, on a 10- by 15-inch baking sheet and layer evenly with basil leaves, tomato slices, and mozzarella slices. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper and top with remaining bread slices, oil side up.

Step 2

Broil sandwiches 6 inches from heat, turning once, until bread is golden brown and cheese is melted, 2 to 3 minutes total. Serve immediately.

Step 3

Nutritional analysis per sandwich.

Super tasty, super easy. When I'm just making one for myself, using the toaster oven is perfect. I mix it up and sometimes add crushed garlic and/or pesto. If I have it, I add prosciutto, which is super nice in this sandwich. Also brushing a touch of balsamic vinaigrette to the insides of the bread gives it a little zest.

Delicious and easy. If you love these flavors, you will love these sandwiches. Great for making lunch for everyone because they're hot and ready all at once!

I just did not like it the roasted red pepper kept falling out of the bread and there was no flavor at all

These are fantastic! Don't skimp on the basil. It totally makes the recipe. Rather than regular salt, I added a dash of garlic salt. I cooked them on my foreman grill.

YUMMY!!! This was really good and super easy. I didn't mind turning the broiler on for this at all even at 90 degrees out! Served with a light spaghetti salad. Husband LOVED it too.

This was very easy to make and my boyfriend made yum yum noises! I took a previous reviewers advice and added the tomato pesto on one of the bread slices which was delicious. served it with a spinach salad. :)
