Why Are Cheese & Bread & Tomatoes So Good Together?

Breakfast of Champions. Toasted rye and salt rolls slathered with vegetable cream cheese and studded with halved grape tomatoes (Sun Gold and Candy Store heirloom varieties).


Mexican tortas don't get simpler than this. Spread a thin layer of refried beans on a large whole wheat sandwich roll that has been cut in half lengthwise. Top with a bit of grated sharp cheddar, some chopped tomatoes and thinly sliced onion and green bell pepper. Dust with chili powder. Toast until crisp and eat with a green salad for a true 10-minute meal. If you have an extra couple of minutes to spare, treat yourself to the addition of chopped cilantro and sliced pickled jalapeno peppers. Sliced avocado adds a touch of luxury.
