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.
