    Chicagoland Chef du Jour's Note:

    These make a perfect side to chicken, beef, seafood, anything Italian, or a rustic soup. Super easy to assemble, it just takes a bit of time to bake. Use any type of tomato you have on hand. Make as many servings as you like depending on size of the tomatoes. I serve 1/2 of a large tomato or several smaller halves per person. Adjust seasonings based on the size and amounts used. I basically just dust the tomatoes with the garlic powder, salt and pepper. Enjoy! 10/09 EDIT to add. Baking time can be done at any oven temperature, adjust bake time accordingly.

      we really enjoyed this tonight, I have huge meaty tomatoes leftover from my garden and this was a wonderful way to enjoy them, I used my Kittencal's Seasoned Dry Italian Breadcrumbs and omitted the sea salt, also I drizzled them with just a little bit more oil, thank you for sharing Chicagoland!
