Grilled Tomato "Burger" with Herbed Cream Cheese

Servings: 4 sandwiches

1 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons snipped fresh basil
1 tablespoon snipped fresh chives
1 clove garlic, minced
2 large very firm ripe tomatoes (about 1 pound)
4 kaiser rolls or hamburger buns, split and toasted

In a small bowl, beat together the cream cheese, basil, chives and garlic with an electric mixer until smooth; set aside. Slice each tomato into 4 thick slices, discarding ends. Place tomato slices in a single layer in a large grill basket.

For a charcoal grill, place grill basket on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium-hot coals. Grill tomatoes 6 to 8 minutes or until just tender and starting to brown on edges, turning once. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium-hot. Place grill basket on grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as above.)

To serve, spread bottoms of each roll with the herbed cream cheese mixture. Place 2 tomato slices on each roll. Add roll tops.
