Expert Tips

"I really feel like I'm making something special and healthy for my family when I use fresh tomatoes from my garden. This recipe, which goes together in a snap, gives me a taste of summer." —BETTY H.

For your next doctor appointment, bring a three-day food record. This gives the doctor important information about your meal and snack times and food selections. If you add your self-tested blood glucose numbers to the record, the information becomes even more useful.

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 375°. Place bread slices on ungreased cookie sheets. Drizzle 1 teaspoon oil over each bread slice.
  • 2 Mix tomato, basil, capers, salt and pepper. Spread half of the tomato mixture over bread slices; top each with cheese slice. Spread remaining tomato mixture over cheese.
  • 3 Bake about 8 minutes or until bread is hot and cheese is melted. Serve hot.
