These are great when you have an overabundance of tomatoes from your garden (they all seem to ripen at once!) Best if large beefsteak type tomatoes are used. Recipe can be doubled or even tripled.

So good! Very fresh flavor. I used six tomatoes and adjusted the recipe accordingly. This was fantastic. I may mix some fresh parmesan cheese into the topping next time. Thanx!

Great taste! I think the celery salt gave it a nice flavor. I liked that this is different from my usual cheesy tomatoes. Thank you for a nice side dish! I should mention that I had huge tomatoes that I cut into thirds and it worked well.
