Baked Tomatoes With a Parmesan Cheese Crust and Balsamic Drizzle

Baked Tomatoes With a Parmesan Cheese Crust and Balsamic Drizzle created by Penny Stettinius

There is nothing ordinary about these baked tomatoes. They are scrumptions especially at this time of the year when tomatoes are so flavorful. Everything can be made up ahead of time for that last minute serving. Bon appetit! Update: There was some confusion whether to slice or cut the tomato in half...so I have re-worded the recipe to read a little bit better.

    I'm sorry, but I really didn't care for this. I'm glad I tried it with just one tomato, so I didn't waste much. The tomato slices were really mushy, and the balsamic glaze overpowered the flavor of the tomato. I did put these under the broiler for a few minutes to crisp up the topping, but that didn't help. That being said, I did like the flavor of the glaze, and I think it would be heavenly with a touch less sugar served over sliced strawberries and short cake.

    This recipe was just OK. I followed the recipe exact and found that there was too much bread crumbs. The tomatoes didn't get too browned either. I even let them bake an extra 15 minutes. I may make this again, but am in no hurry.

    Abby, We really enjoyed these delicious yet simple tomatoes last night with grilled lamb chops and potato croquettes. I added freshly crcked black pepper and more Parmesan and baked for about 40 minutes rather than the 25 suggested. I like my baked tomatoes oozing and soft. The balsamic drizzle is the perfect accent! Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful recipe.
