Broiled Tomatoes Parmesan

Number of Servings: 4

Serving Size: 1/2 tomato

Here's the perfect accompaniment to a summer meal. The just-ripe tomatoes provide a taste straight from the garden, enhanced by the golden-brown, crunchy Parmesan-crumb topping.

Name: Amount:
tomato 2 ea
clove garlic, minced 1 ea
olive oil 2 tsp
basil 1 Tbsp
fresh ground black pepper 0.25 tsp
soft bread crumbs 0.50 cup
grated Parmesan cheese 1 Tbsp

Cut the tomatoes in half crosswise. Gently squeeze out and discard the seeds. Place the tomatoes cut side up on a broiler pan prepared with nonstick pan spray.


Combine the garlic, oil, basil, and pepper in a small bowl. Brush evenly over the cut surfaces of the tomatoes. Broil 6 inches from the heat source until hot, about 5 minutes.


While the tomatoes are broiling, combine the crumbs and cheese in a small bowl; sprinkle evenly over the tops of the hot tomatoes. Return to the broiler until the crumbs are browned, about 2 minutes. Serve immediately.
