I went out to my garden this morning and found so many tomatoes that I thought I would make one of my favorite dishes that takes no time at all to make. I could eat all that I made, but I shared them with my neighbor and her husband. She called to tell me how much they both liked them.
In a bowl, mix breadcrumbs, cheese, Italian Seasoning and salt. Mix will to blend flavors.
Preheat broiler in your oven.
Place the sliced tomatoes on foil lined broiled tray or shallow pan.
Sprinkle about 1 1/2 teaspoon of crumb mixture on each sliced tomato. Drizzle each tomato with olive oil. ( additional Monzorella cheese can be place on each if desired ). I doubled the crumb mixture recipe because I had so many tomatoes.
Place under broiler for about 4 to 5 minutes. ( don't place the tomatoes too close to the broiler or they will burn ). Check on them often and watch them until the tomatoes are hot and the topping is brown and bubbly
Remove from oven and serve with your favorite meal. These go well with most anything.
Some of my flavor variatons:
*Use green or yellow tomatoes instead of red.
*Spice them up by adding 1/4 teaspoon crushed red
pepper to breadcrumb mixture.
*Subsitute 1 teaspoon of tyme leaves for Italian Seasoning.
