DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Lightly grease a shallow baking dish just large enough to hold the tomatoes.
  • Turn the seeded tomato halves upside down on several layers of paper towels and drain for about 10 minutes.
  • Arrange the drained tomato halves, cut side up, in the prepared dish.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the bread crumbs, oregano, and pepper.
  • Fill the tomato halves with the bread crumb mixture (about 1/2 TBS each).
  • Season with coarse salt.
  • Drizzle each half with 1 tsp of the oil.
  • Bake, uncovered, for 1 1/2 hours, or until the tops are nicely browned and caramelized.
  • Let cool slightly before serving, or serve at room temperature.
  • For best results, do not refrigerate.
