I hope all of you celebrating Labor Day today had a wonderful holiday! Mine was spent in the kitchen baking cinnamon rolls and foccacia – it was a great day!!

Have you ever tried a recipe, then thought to yourself – this is so amazingly good and easy, why didn’t I think of this myself sooner?? That is what went through my head when I made these cheese toasts. DE-LIC-IOUS!! Seriously one of my favorite things that I’ve made lately, and they are so easy that you’ll wonder how you lived before they came along. Seriously, I liked them that much. And they can be considered semi-healthy since they have tomatoes and zucchini, right?? :)

Bacon-Tomato Cheese Toasts

This ultimate open faced sandwich is covered with cheese, bacon, tomatoes and zucchini.

Ingredients

  • 2 ripe tomatoes
  • Kosher salt
  • 8 strips bacon
  • 4 slices Texas toast or other thick sandwich bread
  • 3/4 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 3/4 cup grated part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 5 scallions, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/2 small zucchini, very thinly sliced
  • Freshly ground pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Core the tomatoes and thinly slice. Place in a colander in the sink and sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon salt; let drain for at least 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until crisp, about 10 minutes; transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate. Pour off and reserve the drippings, leaving 1 tablespoon in the skillet; toast the bread on one side in the drippings until golden (do this in batches, adding more drippings as needed). Place the bread, toasted-side down, on a baking sheet.
  3. Combine the cheeses with the mayonnaise, scallions and parsley in a bowl. Spread the cheese mixture on the toasts, reserving about 1/3 cup. Crumble the bacon on top. Shake any excess liquid from the tomatoes; distribute the zucchini and tomatoes among the toasts. Dot with the reserved cheese mixture and season with pepper. Bake until golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes. Serve warm.
