Cheese topped baked tomatoes

    35 min

    A wonderful way to serve tomatoes. Ripe tomatoes are sprinkled with Pecorino Romano, breadcrumbs, garlic, parsley, salt, pepper and oregano, then drizzled with olive oil and baked until heated through.

    I prepared these exactly as written, right down to the fresh bread crumbs. I did, however, ignore the baking time, as 20 minutes at 400 degrees is WAY too long! I baked these for 10 minutes at 350 degrees, then hit them with the broiler for a couple of minutes. Simply beautiful, delicious, fresh tasting, and a colorful addition to the dinner plate! You just can't go wrong with good, simple, fresh ingredients!  -  09 Aug 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is really good! But it definitly does not taste like pizza. If you like tomatoes this is definitly worth trying. I didn't make the recipe exactly as stated. I sprinkled on parmesan,then garlic salt/pepper,then sprinkled on dry Italian bread crumbs, sprayed with tops lighly with cooking spray (olive oil) then sprinkled on oregano. My husband loved them and ate almost the entire pan by himself. I plan on passing this recipe out to friends and family soon.  -  09 Aug 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Awesome! Just as the submitter states these do tastes just like pizza without the crust! After I cut the tomatoes I sprinkled them with a bit of kosher salt then started layering the rest of the ingredients. I didn't have fresh bread crumbs so I used italian style. I have to admit I just eyeballed everything. I also used parmesan cheese. On a couple of them I used some light mozzarella to really take them over the top! This dish is great as an appetizer or a side. Thank for a great recipe!  -  16 Jun 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
