Baked Tomatoes with Parmesan & Herbs


 5 large tomatoes
1 c. olive oil
½ c. freshly grated Parmesan Cheese
½ c. bread crumbs (plain or Panko)
¼ c. freshly chopped Parsley


1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Cut the tomatoes in half and scoop of the seeds with a spoon. Nestle each half, cut side up, in a baking dish.
2. Drizzle the tomatoes with the olive oil and pat around them to make sure they are nicely coated.
3. Mix the breadcrumbs, cheese and parsley together in a bowl. Pat even amounts into each tomato. Bake for 25-30 minutes until the tops are golden brown and the cheese is slightly melted.

Other herbs like thyme, rosemary or basil would be delicious in this. It would also be great if you wanted to mix the herbs make flavors all your own.

Naptime Reviews

My daughter would only eat hers after I’d cut it up and tossed it with pasta. But my husband and I devoured them just as they were!
