Karlene Karst Roasted Tomato Pesto Melt Oroweat Organic Bread


As a nutritionist, avid recipe developer and mom of 3, my kitchen is always in high use! Over the years, we have been making several changes to cut down on waste, make it more sustainable, shop fresh, support local, and of course eat a more plant-rich diet. And now that we’re in 2022, these little things to make my kitchen a little more sustainable go a long way!

In our house, sandwiches are on repeat and the lunch bread is a BIG deal. That’s why Oroweat Canada’s 100% Whole Grain bread really is a perfect choice for my family as we don’t have to sacrifice taste for nutritious ingredients. Along with their commitment to the planet and keeping our homes healthy and happy, it’s a brand I can happily get on board with.

I absolutely love a warm and delicious open-faced sandwich, and together with Oroweat Organic, I’ve created this Pesto Tomato Cheese melt that really hits the spot. It’s crispy, garlicy and cheesy – I mean these are definitely part of my food language and I’ve shared the recipe below.



Ingredients –

  • 2 slices of Oroweat bread (100% whole grain)
  • 4 tomato slices
  • 2 slices of sharp cheddar cheese
  • 4 tbsp basil pesto, homemade or store-bought
  • fresh cracked pepper
  • pinch of salt


Directions –

  1. 01. Preheat the oven on the broiler setting. Toast the bread slices!
  2. 02. Once the bread is toasted, add 2 tablespoons of pesto onto each slice and spread evenly.
  3. 03. Place tomato slices on top, followed by slices of cheese.
  4. 04. Place in the broiler for about 5-10 minutes until cheese is melted.
  5. 05. Drizzle some extra pesto on top of the open-faced sandwich, and sprinkle with freshly cracked pepper and salt. Enjoy!
