Tomato & Feta Open Faced Sandwiches

There is something comforting about this sandwich. It takes me back to my childhood, and racing home from school at lunch to find a yummy meal awaiting me. Toasted tomato sandwiches and a bowl of chicken noodle soup being one of my favourite childhood lunches. I love the idea of turning classic foods into something more sophisticated. I saw this sandwich on the cover of this month's issue of Bon Appetit. The picture showed it with Heirloom tomatoes, but I did not have any on hand, so I just used regular hot house tomatoes.

1) Toast thick slices of bread
2) Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil
3) Layer tomatoes and feta cheese
4) Drizzle with more extra virgin olive oil
5) Season with salt and pepper
6) Sprinkle on fresh thyme


  1. Gorgeous! I never have fresh herbs on hand when I go to make something like this, so my dishes don't look this pretty :-(

  2. I have an herb plant with all my favorite herbs in my front yard! You need one.
