A Sandwich That Will Knock Your Socks Off!

Roasted Parmesan Tomato Sandwich
My yummy sandwich!
I just tried this recipe called, 'Roasted Parmesan Tomato Sandwich' was my lunch yesterday and it was simply delicious...'simple' being the key to the fresh flavors of this sandwich! While I was devouring...and I mean DEVOURING this sandwich, I felt like I was transported to a quaint little sidewalk cafe in Italy! I've never been to Italy but I just know they must serve food like this all the time at those sidewalk cafes!

I found the recipe on my food friends website show! Her name is Kc Quaretti and she does a series of food videos for the Food Channel cooking website. Her webisodes are called 'Chat n' Dish'...I never miss a single one! Watch her video below, on how to make this delicious sandwich!

The only small changes I made was to use kalamata olives instead of black olives and I used 1 tsp. dried oregano instead of fresh because that's what I had on hand!

My choice of tomato was plum! One plum tomato, cut in half, fit perfectly on the sliced Italian bread! And Kc Quaretti was so correct when she wrote, "Serve with lots of napkins"...the juicy roasted tomatoes will be dripping out of this scrumptious sandwich with every bite!
Here are the simple ingredients...

4 tomatoes cut in half - I used plum tomatoes
¼ cup grated Parmesan
¼ cup bread crumbs
1 tablespoon oregano - I used 1 tsp. dried oregano
¼ teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 baguette or 5 grain Italian bread
¼ cup mayonnaise
3 tablespoons country French mustard - I used Dijon mustard 
8 ounces mozzarella slices
4 lettuce leaves
¼ cup chopped black olives - I used kalamata olives
