Get the best tomatoes for this. Try heirloom or ripe summer tomatoes. We also love to choose varying colors. For the cheese, go for soft-ripened cheeses like Brie and Camembert. We love how they smoothly melt over the toast instead of turning into a stringy mess. Note, however, the rind will not melt.
1. Move an oven rack about 8 inches from the broiler. Then, set broiler to high.
2. Slice tomatoes and season with salt and pepper. Then, arrange onto a plate.
3. Cut cheese into thin slices.
4. Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper then place bread slices onto baking sheet.
5. Arrange the cheese slices on top of bread (the cheese does not have to completely cover the bread). Drizzle 1 tablespoon of the olive oil over the bread and cheese. Broil until cheese melts. Watch closely, here, you don’t want to burn the bread.
6. Remove bread, cut in half then arrange on a plate. Drizzle with second tablespoon of olive oil and arrange next to tomatoes.
