Broiled Parmesan Tomatoes

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 15 min.

I love to make this recipe when tomatoes are at their peak—the tomatoes almost melt in your mouth.—Joylyn Trickel


  • 3 large tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh basil or 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 3/4 cup soft bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese


  1. Slice tomatoes in half. Using a small spoon, remove seeds. Place tomato halves on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Combine the oil, garlic and pepper. Brush over tomatoes. Sprinkle with basil.
  2. Broil about 6 in. from heat for 3-4 minutes or until heated through. In a small bowl, combine bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese. Sprinkle over tomatoes. Broil 1-2 minutes longer or until crumbs are lightly browned. Serve immediately.

    Simple and delicious for quick weeknight side dish. My tomatoes were extra juicy, so I gave them a few extra minutes under the broiler and drained the pan a bit before topping with the Parmesan and bread crumb mixture. Thanks for sharing!
