Cheese Topped Broiled Cherry Tomatoes
This is actually a Swiss recipe (from Switzerland). But there is no "Swiss cuisine" category, so I picked French cuisine as I thought it was the closest match.

1 1/2 Tbspcapers, rinsed and drained
1 1/2 Tbspchopped chives
1 Tbspunsalted butter, melted
1/8 tspcayenne pepper, optional
