I was very surprised at how great these turned out! I had some plum tomatoes from my garden, so I used them. I used Ritz for the cracker crumbs. I started in the micro and then moved to the oven, since I had chicken cooking in there at high heat anyway. I normally do not go for hot tomatoes, but this almost tasted like pizza. Me and my 12 yo daughter (the only tomato eaters in the house) scarfed them down! Thanks for a new way to use tomatoes. P.S. Posted a picture, but it does not do them justice. They are nice enough to served for company.
I also baked in the oven at 350...I used my fresh tomatoes and added fresh garlic as well. The only cheese on hand was a blend of different cheeses. Worked great! Serving this for company coming next month. We loved your recipe, not a bite was left!
These were really good. I also put mine in the oven at 350 for around 20 min. I added parmesan and italian seasonings along with the cheddar. Very yummy, and i'm not a tomato person!
Great! I used preseasoned italian breadcrumbs also along with some minced garlic too. I made this in the oven instead at the same time as Stuffed Lasanga Shells #122835 at 350 degrees for 20min and then I put the cheese on top and allowed it to cook until bubbling. I used around 25 cherry tomatoes since we had just harvested them and wanted an interesting way to use them. Thanks!
This is a wonderful way to eat tomatoes. I can't wait until summertime to use "real" tomatoes. This time I used hot house tomatoes. I could have cooked them in the micro, but opted to bake in the oven at 350º for 20 minutes instead. The tomatoes were warm and the cheese melted perfectly. Thanks, Ginny for posting this recipe.
These were great. My husband said they tasted like a little pizza. I didn't use crackers, but used Italian bread crumbs and a little extra cheese and they turned out great. A good recipe for all my garden tomatoes. Thanks for posting.
What an easy, yet delicious side dish! I have tons of tomatoes from my garden and I've been searching for new ways to serve them. This was so good and it only took minutes to prepare! I used Saltine crackers and didn't make any changes to the recipe. Thanks Ginny, I'll be making this one again!
