Roasted Parmesan Tomatoes

I’ve always been a little in love with tomatoes. When I was in junior high, I used to come home and slice one in half, and top it with parmesan and pepper before popping it into the broiler. A bit of a strange after school snack for a young teen, but it’s still a favorite of mine to this day. Here’s an updated version with a bit more sophistication and a kick up in flavor. A great appetizer too!

Roasted Parmesan Tomatoes
adapted from spoon and chair

2 large ripe tomatoes
1/4 cup grated fresh parmesan
1/4 cup breadcrumbs
1 tbsp dried parsley
1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper


Preheat broiler. Cut tomatoes in half crosswise, remove any hard, center core. Place tomato halves, cut side up, on a small baking dish. In small bowl, mix together the parmesan, breadcrumbs, parsley & pepper. Spoon breadcrumb mixture on top of tomatoes, press to hold in place. Place tomatoes under broiling and broil until crumbs are golden brown and tomatoes are heated through, about 2 minutes.
