  1. This was a nice and tasty side dish. I'm a huge tomato lover and am always looking for new ways to spruce them up to add them to a meal. I increased the garlic in this dish and made a lot more than the stated 2 tomatoes. I increased the crumb topping as well, however, it wasn't necessary since I had a LOT of crumb topping left. I used panko breadcrumbs and probably only roasted these about 12 minutes. The only thing I would do differently next time is to maybe drop some minced garlic on each individual tomato before adding the garlic crumb topping. While the topping was amazing...I felt the tomatoes could have used some more seasoning of some sort and garlic is the first one I'd try on my next go-round. Thanks for a great recipe. I'll be trying this dish again!!
  2. THIS is terrific. I could gladly make a meal of only these tomatoes. Only changes I made were to use olive oil and to sprinkle the tomato halves with a seasoning mix before topping with the bread crumb mixture. We're having this again VERY soon.
  3. Very nice and delicious recipe. Makes a great dish for summer. Thanks.
  4. This was delicious Tish. I used panko breadcrumbs and added some dried basil, oregano, garlic and onion powders...which gave the filling a wonderful flavor. I will definitely make this again. Thanks
  5. This is a great side dish, I served this with bbq steak and potatoes and a great meal. The tomatoes came out very flavorful


I live in Las Vegas. I was lucky enough to run into Recipezaar around Nov. 2000 and got hooked quickly. I am a cookbook collector and have been collecting recipes for as long as I can remember. My DH had to build in shelves for all my cookbooks! I like to dabble with OAMC and for a few years hosted the Budget/OAMC forum with some great people over there. Even though I don't work in the forum any longer I've set up a lot of cookbooks for the purpose of OAMC and stretching food that might be helpful. Please feel free to check them out! I go on food jags and cooking jags! Please come say hi to me and chat on facebook. I currently host a blog for saving money through finding deals and coupons if you are interested. Most of the time I try to cook and have a good dinner on the table but I'll be honest enough to say there is still fast food occasionally in the budget! I have had such wonderful support here whenever I need it. Thank you all for being here! Just a quick note on how I rate recipes: ? 5 stars - This recipe is perfect. (My DH is truly a critic and doesn't give 5's unless it's amazing) I would recommend it to others and would definitely make again. ? 4 stars - This recipe was good but I would change something in it next time. ? 3 stars - This is a recipe I would not make again but it was OK ? 2 stars - This recipe I would not make again and we didn't like it at all ? 1 star - This recipes did not work out/taste was unappealing and wouldn't make again
