In less than 10 minutes you can have a beautiful, mouthwatering dish that showcases your garden's tomatoes. Each tomato is topped with a crisp cap of herbs, bread crumbs and cheese. These tomatoes are the perfect accompaniment to any meal.
1Cut off a half-inch slice from the stem end of each tomato. Remove any remaining core. Season the cut ends of each tomato with ¼ teaspoon salt. Place cut end down on a rack or paper towel. Let drain for 30 minutes. Blot dry with a paper towel.
2Preheat oven broiler. Line a broiler pan with foil. Place tomatoes cut side up on the prepared pan. Season with pepper to taste. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of fresh herbs over the top of each tomato. Drizzle each tomato with 1 teaspoon olive oil. Broil until hot, and the tops begin to brown, 5 to 7 minutes.
3Combine bread crumbs and cheese. Divide evenly among the tomatoes. Broil until the cheese is melted, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Serve immediately.
