Quick and Easy Cheesy Garlic Tomato Bread

We love Italian food and will eat at least one Italian dinner every week. We love lasagna, baked ziti, spaghetti & meatballs, garlic shrimp pasta, manicotti stuffed shells and all sorts of other dishes. Every time we make something Italian for dinner, we like to serve it alongside a freshly prepared veggie salad and some cheesy garlic tomato bread. With that said, we do cheat when we make our bread! Makes 6 servings.

Quick and Easy Cheesy Garlic Tomato Bread

1 Box Frozen Texas Toast or Garlic Bread
1 Large Red Tomato, Sliced Thin
1/8 Cup Mozzarella Cheese, Shredded
1/8 Cup Italian 3-Cheese Blend, Shredded
Parmesan Cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Lay the frozen bread slices in a glass baking dish in a single layer. Lay tomato slices on top of the bread. Mix together the shredded cheeses and the oregano. Divide cheese up into 6 portions and sprinkle the cheese on top of the bread and tomato slices. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top.

Place baking dish into a preheated oven and bake until bread is done and all of the cheese has melted. This typically takes 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from oven and let stand for 2 minutes before serving. Simple to make and they taste delicious!

Variation: During the summer when I have excess bell peppers from my garden, we'll slice them up into strips and toss them onto the bread with the tomato slices and then toss the shredded cheese on top. From time to time my husband will add sliced onion onto his too!

I like this mixture of cheeses on the garlic bread. I also like the addition of the fresh tomato slices. I might added some julienned fresh basil too.
