Derf this is so tasty and so easy to do.. I like it baked extra long so it gets crunchy crisp. Simple easy recipe that adds so much flavor as a side dish.

These tomatoes were absolutely delicious. I cut the recipe in half, but wish I hadn't, because I'm sure they would taste just as good leftover. This is a great change of pace side dish that I'll be making often. Thanks Derf

The flavor of broiled tomatoes without the fuss of everything fallowing off the top! Cut the recipe in half and it worked out great, 2 slices of bread gave me just the right amount of fresh bread crumbs. Thanks for the easy and tasty post.

It was wonderful! I used fresh parsley and basil in the breadcrumb mix. The breadcrumbs were from the can and I used basil infused oil. I added some asparagus next to the tomatoes half way through the baking and shaved some parm. reg. cheese on top and it was great!!

I'm not a big fan of bread crumb toppings but DD picked this recipe and she was the cook that night. I didn't have fresh breadcrumbs and we were unsure if we were to make our own so we used regular store bought crumbs which is fairly fine. Next day we used the leftovers with some fried ground hamburger, diced yellow squash, onions, roasted garlic and leftover tomato sauce for a quick lazy stuffed zucchinni dish (we made it up!) and it was great.

DELICIOUS!! I only had Heinz tomatoes so I used them. I put 4 slices fresh bread in food processor to make crumbs.Then I minced the parsley, garlic & a few basil leaves in the processor, added that to the bread crumbs along with the remaining oil,salt & pepper. I added fresh grated parmesan at the end. It smelled and tasted wonderful. Thanks Derf

I thought that this dish would be really good - it smelled heavenly throughout the cooking time. However, I felt there were too many bread crumbs and it just didn't taste good to me when it was done.

Really great side dish! You will definetely taste the olive oil, but it is so good! Worth the wait of baking.

This was and easy and tasty sidedish to simple broiled fish. I did cut back on the oil and couldn't help but add fresh basil to the breadcrumb mixture. Thank you Derf for sharing the recipe. It is one I am sure to return to.
