Lately, everyone and their brother has been giving my mom tomatoes. She eats them plain, which I think is gross, so today I made a couple for her with a topping from a recipe I found online. Also, it was a good way to use up the extra Parmesan cheese I had left over from the Zucinni Pie.
Broiled Parmesan Tomatoes
* 4 large tomatoes
* 1 cup fresh bread crumbs
* 1/4 cup melted butter
* 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
* 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
Wash tomatoes; remove stems. Slice in halves crosswise. Place tomato halves in a large broiler pan. Blend bread crumbs, butter, cheese and seasoning; spoon over tomatoes. Broil 10 inches from heat for 4 to 5 minutes or until tomatoes are hot and topping is browned.
*Don't use Italian Seasoning if you use Seasoned Bread Crumbs!!!!! Also, I salted and peppered the cut tomatoes before adding the topping. They came out good but I am not a huge Parmesan cheese fan, so I think Mozzarella would have been better.
**My mom said they were good but she still likes them plain. ew.
