Grilled Open-Faced Sandwiches

I am always surprised by how delicious and satisfying these easy, open-faced sandwiches are. Serve with a nice side-salad or a soup and dinner is made! Also, experimenting with other toppings can be quite rewarding.

  • 1 loaf French bread
  • 2-3 tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • 2 shallots thinly sliced
  • slices of sharp, white cheddar cheese
  • thinly sliced, cured chorizo (looks kind of like a peperoni stick)
  • fresh basil leaves (we grow our own--can use dried if necessary)
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper

Slice as much bread as you plan to use and brush each slice generously with olive oil on one side. Arrange tomatoes, chorizo, and basil over each slice, then top with shallots and cheese. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Arrange slices in a broiler pan and broil for 5 to 10 minutes, watching carefully to avoid burning.

Serves 4 (This meal costs about £0.65/person.)
