Broiled Tomatoes

This is one of my favorite ways to eat tomatoes. I've been making this tomato recipe for at least 20 years now and it is always a special request from my husband. The flavor of the mustard with tomato is very light, but the bread crumb topping adds a little bit of a crunch to the dish. Very simple and quick, only about 3-4 minutes in the broiler. The perfect accompaniment to any grilled beef or chicken.


3 tomatoes sliced in half with stem removed
6 T Dijon style mustard
Dry oregano
Italian style bread crumbs (about 6 T.)
6 T melted butter
Parmesan cheese


Place tomatoes in over proof dish cut side up. Spread the mustard on top and then sprinkle with oregano. Top with the bread crumbs...you can y=use more that 1 T if you like...I know I do. The pour melted butter on top and sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese. Place in broiler for about 3-4 minutes depending upon how high up the oven rack is in proximity to the broiler. Remove from broiler, top should be a little on the crunchy side and serve.
