English Muffins with Cheese, Fresh Basil and Tomatoes
Wanting to do something easy yet incredibly delicious with my garden fresh tomatoes I whipped this up much to the delight of my dear wife as well my taste buds. Make no mistake, this is only sensational if you have really great tomatoes (not to mention fresh basil.) Grocery store tomatoes will only get you a pedestrian result. Serves one generously.
Create a chiffonade of basil and add it into a small dish with the oil and a pinch of salt. Place into the fridge for about a half hour while the flavors meld. Slice the tomatoes into very thick slices (after all they are the star of this dish) and set aside.
When ready to begin toast the muffin halves until they are well browned. Lay on a plate, and for each one top with a slice of jack cheese, a slice on onion and a slice of tomato. Drizzle about one tablespoon of the basil and oil on top and top with about 2 tablespoons of the Parmesan. Season with S&P to taste.
