tomato heaven

growing up my dad was always whipping up some new recipe.  he never measured (either did my mama) they were just natural born chefs i guess.  going off to college i would cook what i grew up eating and my roommates always thought it was funny when i couldn't tell them how much of what to put in.  i would just shake until it looked right.  well fortunately for you folks i was introduced to this yummy treat by my dad.  guess it's not technically a treat, but that's what i call it because it's so yummy. 

the other day i had been out picking a plethora of tomatoes from my garden and i was wondering what on earth i was going to do with them all.  then i remembered how my mouth would water every time my dad made these so i rushed inside and quickly got to work.  

all you do is slice tomatoes onto a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper (you can use tin foil but it tends to stick :-/).  next, slice mozzarella,  provolone, or pepper jack cheese to lay overtop.  i prefer pepper jack but all i had was provolone. then sprinkle with a touch of salt.

turn your broiler on high and cook until the cheese is melted and slightly browned.

walla! you are in for a treat,  enjoy! i know i sure did!
