Ingredients

  • 1 slice Italian bread, 1/2 inch thick
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup finely grated Parmesan
  • 2 slices heirloom tomato, 1/2 inch thick
  • Red-wine vinegar
  • Flaky sea salt, such as Maldon
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • Fresh basil leaves, torn if large

Directions

  1. Brush both sides of bread with oil, then pat cheese evenly onto both sides.

  2. Heat a dry nonstick skillet over medium. Add coated bread and cook, flipping once, until cheese is golden brown and melted, about 5 minutes.

  3. Place one tomato slice on a plate. Sprinkle with vinegar, then drizzle with oil; season with salt and pepper. Layer with toast and remaining tomato slice. Sprinkle with vinegar, then drizzle with oil; season with salt and pepper. Top with basil and serve.
