Parmesan Tomatoes

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 25 min.


4 servings

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.


  • 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


  1. Remove stems from the tomatoes and halve widthwise. Place, cut side up, in a small baking dish. Combine all remaining ingredients; sprinkle over tomato tops. Bake at 375° for 15 minutes or until heated through.
