I had made some "No Knead Bread" (the recipe is posted here!) and wanted something light to go with the bread for dinner. So I made these tomatoes - perfect! I only used 3 tomatoes tonight, but the topping can easily go for 4.
Here's my recipe for French/Italian Baked Tomatoes~
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Halve tomatoes (not stem to stem, but through the middle).
Place in baking dish. Sprinkle with kosher salt and freshly ground pepper.
In a small bowl, mix together:
2 cloves minced garlic
chopped thyme, parsley, and basil to equal 1/4 C
1 C Panko bread crumbs
1/4 C finely grated Parmesan cheese
Place breadcrumb mixture on tomatoes (about 2 TBL each) and then drizzle with olive oil.
Bake, uncovered, for about 40 minutes, or until lightly browned. Serve immediately!
