Parmesan Tomatoes Recipe

When ruby-red tomatoes appear on the vines in the garden, my family requests these cheesy topped tomatoes as a side dish. I also enjoy these by themselves for a light lunch.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 2 large tomatoes
  • 3 tablespoons dry bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil or 1 tablespoon snipped fresh basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh parsley
  • Dash pepper
