Parmesan Broiled Tomatoes

Still got oodles of tomatoes coming out of the garden?  Ours are slowing down ... but we've got a few still making their way into our kitchen.  I just adore fresh-off-the-vine homegrown tomatoes ... especially their smell.  Yep, I'm totally enamored with the smell of a freshly-picked tomato.

I like to eat them, too, of course.  And one of our favorite {super easy!} ways to enjoy them is as this simple side of Parmesan Broiled Tomatoes.

These tasty tomatoes whip up super quick with just a teeny bit of tossing of some topping ingredients, and a few minutes of broiling time.

That's it.

Easy-peasy.


Simply toss together some bread crumbs, shredded Parmesan cheese, fresh parsley, and olive oil.  Then mound the mixture up on top of halved tomatoes, like this ...


Then pop the 'maters under the broiler for a few minutes until the cheese is a bit melty and the topping is lightly browned.

And there you have it!  A super simple way to enjoy beautiful fresh tomatoes.

Do you hear them calling your name?

Ingredients
  • 4 to 6 Roma tomatoes, halved lengthwise
  • 1/2 c. Italian-style bread crumbs
  • 2/3 c. shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 3 T. chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/3 c. extra virgin olive oil
  • salt & pepper, to taste
Directions
  1. Place tomato halves on a broiler pan, cut side up.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, parsley, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Stir until well combined. Press a little bit of the mixture together with your fingers; if mixture is too dry to just barely hold together in a clump, drizzle and mix in a little bit more olive oil.
  3. Top each tomato half with approximately one tablespoon of the Parmesan mixture, mounding it up on top of the tomato. Place tomatoes under a pre-heated broiler; broil until the cheese is melted and topping is lightly browned.
