A true italian dish both in flavor and preparation. If looking for an unusual but attractive side dish, you found it! This came from a site that sells tomato cages.

  1. Slice tomatoes in half and spread with mustard. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper.
  2. Mix bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, and melted butter well.
  3. Spread crumb mixture over each tomato half.

Delicious!! The mustard and the buttered crumbs give it awesome flavor and crunch. My oven has a low and high broiler, so I did 5 min on low and 5 on high and it was perfect. I will make this again and again, thank you for sharing
