Broiled Tomato Sandwiches #58

One of my favorite meals in the whole world is the tomato soup and tomato mozzarella and basil sandwich at Panera. The Neely's tomato soup is pretty close.  Tonight I'm going to try the make the sandwich side.  

The case:
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
4 ripe tomatoes, sliced
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese, divided
4 slices bread, lightly toasted

1.  Preheat oven to broil.
2.  In a shallow bowl, whisk together the olive oil and vinegar. Marinate the tomatoes in the mixture, stirring occasionally.
3.  Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, parsley, oregano, black pepper and 4 teaspoons Parmesan cheese. Spread mixture on each slice of toasted bread.
 4.  Place marinated tomatoes on 2 slices and sprinkle with remaining Parmesan cheese.
5.  Place on a baking sheet and broil for 5 minutes, or until cheese turns golden brown. Serve immediately, open faced or closed.
The ruling:
These were SOOOO good!!!  I will make these regularly.  And I forgot to marinate the tomatoes, which I know would have made it better.  I added basil to the mayonnaise mixture, and put fresh mozzarella and bacon on the sandwiches with the tomatoes.
