Homemade Staples: Broiled Roma Tomatoes


This is a really great and easy dish to make as a side to a meal.  There is a lot of variety in the ingredients that you use.  For the lunch I made for entertaining guests this past weekend, I wanted to keep things simple and just used mozzarella and bread crumbs.  However, other cheeses such as Parmesan, Bleu cheese, Feta and Gruyere would also be very good.  To take these to the next level, you can also think about adding minced garlic, chopped kalamata olives,  fresh oregano, or a balsamic vinegar drizzle.

Broiled Roma Tomatoes

  • Roma Tomatoes
  • Bread Crumbs
  • Shredded (or crumbled) Cheese
  • Cooking Spray

Preheat the broiler.

Cut the Roma tomatoes in half lengthwise.  Scoop out and discard seeds.

Place tomato halves on a jelly pan coated with cooking spray.

Sprinkle bread crumbs over each tomato half.

Sprinkle cheese of choice over tomatoes.

Broil for 2-3 minutes or until cheese bubbles.
