Open Sandwich with Tomato

Open Sandwich with Tomato |

I was working on this Sunday, so unfortunately we couldn’t have a big breakfast. You know it’s so important for me to have breakfast with a lot of items, it’s like a feast for me at weekends. I got up early yesterday morning with no desire of going out. But I had to!

When I went out, all these feeling disappeared as I saw that it was a lively Spring day. And I really enjoyed walking to work. But this is not the thing I want to share with you today. I’m planning to add some Spring pictures soon, but not today. Today’s surprise is from my husband. He called me before lunch break and wanted me to return home for a late breakfast in the break. Normally I wouldn’t go for such a short time, it was just one-hour-break. However, he persuaded me by telling that there was a surprise waiting for me. I understood the advantage of living close to my work and went home at lunch break.

By the time he opened the door, I understood what his surprise was. These open sandwiches with tomato! One of my favorites. And he had already brewed the tea. So this late breakfast with these small, crispy, hot sandwiches (not lunch) made me feel better. It also helped me feel Sunday although I worked.

Here is the recipe of these yummy open sandwiches by my husband.

Domatesli Kanepe

-1 loaf bread
– 2 tbsp butter
– 4 tomatoes
– 2 green peppers
– ½ tbsp tomato paste
– ½ cup cheese (any kind you like), crumbled
– dried thyme

Preheat the oven to 180C (350F).

Slice the bread in small and thin shapes. Lay an oven proof paper on a tray. Array the bread slices on it. Top each slice with 1tsp butter. 2 tbsp will be enough for all slices, so try to put it equally.

Peel tomatoes and squeeze its water, you may leave a little water inside, but not much. If you don’t squeeze it, the sandwiches may be lumpy. Chop tomatoes and peppers in a bowl. Mix tomato paste with them. Sprinkle a pinch of dried thyme. And put this mixture equally on the slices.

Crumble the cheese (he used white cheese and it was little salty, so he didn’t add any salt to this tomato mixture. If your cheese is not salty, add a pinch of salt to it). Then put cheese on the slices with tomato-pepper mixture.

Cook them for half an hour and serve hot with a cup of tea for breakfast. It also makes a perfect snack. Enjoy!

    oh yum – that looks so good and I know exactly what cheese I would use. I stopped by a goat farm in Pescadero, CA this weekend and picked up some wonderful feta cheese – I can almost taste it! Thanks for sharing.
