Toasted Mozzarella Tomato Sandwich

Here's a very easy lunch idea that's a fun version of the very classic toasted cheese sandwich - all adult-like and such!

Quick, run to your kitchen and pantry, I bet you have all of the ingredients you need already!

Ingredients:
2 slices of high fiber wheat bread (I used Nature's Own, Double Fiber)
1/2 cup reduced fat shredded mozzarella cheese
2 to 4 slices of a larger tomato like vine ripened (if you can find an heirloom, that's great!)
1/4 tsp dried oregano or basil
1tsp balsamic vinegar

Preparation:
Preheat oven to broil setting.

Using your toaster, on a very low setting, lightly toast the bread slices for just a little bit to crisp them up - don't toast too much or your bread will burn in the oven.

Place the lightly-toasted bread onto a foil lined baking sheet sprayed with nonstick spray.

Sprinkle 1/4 cup of cheese onto each slice of bread.

Top each with one to two tomato slices (or more, whatever suits you!).

Sprinkle 1/8 tsp of spices on each half.

Broil the bread slices for just a few minutes - enough to brown the cheese and that's it!

Remove from the oven and pour vinegar (1/2 tsp each slice) onto each tomato.

Serve and enjoy!!

It's simply a rustic-y, adult-y, cheesy bundle of yumminess you can feel good about!
