Broiled tomatoes are a tasty side dish, especially when garden-fresh tomatoes are plentiful. These tomato slices are topped with buttered breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese then broiled.


  • 2 medium tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard (as needed)
  • salt to taste
  • black pepper to taste
  • ground cayenne pepper
  • 3 tablespoons butter (melted)
  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs (fine, dry, and seasoned)
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese (grated)

Steps to Make It

  1. Cut tomatoes in half; spread cut side with mustard and sprinkle with a little salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper to taste.

  2. Combine melted butter, bread crumbs, and Parmesan cheese.

  3. Spoon crumb mixture over the top of each tomato half.

  4. Place under the broiler and broil until crumbs are browned and tomatoes are tender.
