Broiled Tomatoes

Broiled Tomatoes

I never underestimate the magic that breadcrumbs and grated cheese can bring to my favorite fruit. 


6 Halved Tomatoes

1/4 Cup Plain Breadcrumbs

4 Tablespoons Softened Butter

4 Tablespoons Freshly Grated Parmesan Cheese

1 Tablespoon Minced Thyme Leaves

1 Teaspoon Kosher Salt

1/2 Teaspoon Freshly Ground Pepper

Preheat your broiler.  Cover a broiler pan with foil and place the oven rack to the top position.  Slice the tomatoes in half lengthwise and set each tomato half on the broiler pan.  Make sure the stem is removed.  In a small size bowl combine the breadcrumbs, butter, Parmesan cheese, thyme leaves, kosher salt and pepper.  Spoon the mixture over the tomatoes until you’ve used the mixture all up.  Place the broiler pan under the broiler and broil for 4 minutes or until browned.  Remove from the oven and arrange on a serving platter.  Serves 6
