  • 2 large heirloom tomatoes, stem and ends trimmed (sliced into 1/2 inch slices)
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 slices of white artisan bread (sliced to 3/4 inch thickness)
  • 2 garlic cloves (pressed or finely minced)
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise

How to make the Best Tomato Toast
  1. Toast the bread in a toaster, on a grill or a dry skillet until the outside is well toasted/golden. Allow the bread to cool just slightly.

  2. Meanwhile, mix the mayo and garlic. Slice the tomatoes and bread.

  3. Spread some garlic mayo, top with a slice or two of tomatoes and season them with salt & pepper. Next, sprinkle with shredded cheese or shred the cheese right onto the toast.
