Recipe by MISSIB

I had these once when I was in the hospital and been making my version of them ever since. Best part is they are not fattening.

These are delicious! They had a sale on beefsteak tomatoes, so I bought a bunch. This recipe was great to use them up, and they turned out really good. Parmesan cheese sprinkled on top makes them just perfect. Thanks for the recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 beefsteak tomatoes (or any large)
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 12 cup seasoned bread crumbs or 12 cup plain breadcrumbs
  • 12 cup mixed Italian herbs (such as basil, oregano, thyme, parsley)
  • 8 14 teaspoons unsalted butter
  • salt & freshly ground black pepper


  1. Turn on your broiler. A toaster oven with broiling ability is great or a George Foreman Grill.
  2. Remove the cores of the tomatoes then cut them in half (horizontally).
  3. Place cut side up: then rub Olive oil over cut side (use fingertip).
  4. Sprinkle bread crumbs on next.
  5. Sprinkle Herb seasonings on and salt/pepper.
  6. Then place 1/4 teaspoon of unsalted butter on each half.
  7. Broil until tomato is hot completely.
  8. ^May add cheese or mushrooms when nearly done, but don't get them to close to burners in oven.
