This is a very quick and tasty way to fix some of the tomatoes that are coming in from your tomato vines. Nice side dish - and a change from a regular salad.

I scaled this down for one person. I broiled it first, then put it in a skillet and cooked the bottom a little. I used sharp cheddar cheese and Italian bread crumbs. Delicious! Thanks Trisha!

Great tasty side dish which is quick too! The small change I was keeping half of the parsley until serving. Next time I will probably add some crushed garlic to the crumb mixture.

Made some changes, but that's what cooking is all about. Used Italian bread crumbs and parmesan cheese. Broiled in 400 oven. Hot tomatoes with crunchy, salty topping. YUMMY!
