Now, on a medium temperature, heat the butter, or vegan margarine, in a deep pot.

Once the butter or margarine is nearly melted, add the onions.

Sautee the onions until they begin to brown.

Once browned, add the tomatoes, Italian Seasoning, Salt, and Pepper.

The tomatoes will start to cook down and create some liquid.

Simmer until the tomatoes are tender. This cooking time is approximately fifteen to twenty minutes.


Cook Until Tomatoes are Tender

Once the tomatoes are tender, remove from heat.

Now that the tomatoes have finished cooking, slice and toast your favorite bread to your favorite level of brownness.

Next, spread your favorite butter or vegan margarine onto the freshly cooked toast.

Using a slotted spoon, spread the tomato and onion mixture onto the toast. Remember this is an open-faced sandwich.

Now the Savory Open-Faced Sandwich is ready to eat. Enjoy!
