First toast the bread (in your toaster or in the oven) then top with basil, tomato slices, more basil, cheese and pop in the oven under the broiler until the cheese melts and bubbles up about 2-5 minutes. Remove from oven to a plate, top with more basil, oil and vinegar salt and pepper and serve. The tomatoes can make it soggy so chow down now, won’t hold for later.
