Use up a bountiful crop of farmer's market or homegrown tomatoes by broiling them. They make a tasty side dish or perhaps a light lunch.

Ingredients Edit

  • 3 large tomatoes or 6 small tomatoes
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 teaspoons butter or margarine
  • 2 tablespoons fine dry breadcrumbs

Directions Edit

  1. Wash tomatoes and cut off stem ends.
  2. Cut large tomatoes in 1-inch slices; cut small tomatoes in half crosswise.
  3. Place cut side up on broiler pan.
  4. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  5. Dot each slice with butter.
  6. Sprinkle with bread crumbs.
  7. Broil until tomatoes are soft and the bread crumbs are light brown, 5 to 7 minutes.
  8. Serves 6.
