Roasted Tomatoes


Adapted from “The Girl Can Cook”

So simple, so good.

¼ c. olive oil

1 tsp. garlic powder

½ c. grated Parmesan cheese

salt and freshly ground black pepper

½ c. finely ground breadcrumbs

12 – 18 small to medium tomatoes


Heat oil in pan over medium heat and cook breadcrumbs and stir around for a minute or two to toast.  Remove from heat and cool.  Preheat oven to 400.  Stir the grated cheese into the crumbs.  Season with salt and pepper.  Cut the tomatoes in half and remove any large, obvious cores with a paring knife.  Set the tomato halves in a shallow baking dish and season with salt and pepper.  Spread some of the crumbs over each half.  Bake until crumbs are golden, about 5 – 10 minutes.  Serves about 6.
