DIRECTIONS

  • Cut the tomatoes in half crosswise.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Peel and crush the garlic.
  • Heat the oil in a small frying pan over medium heat.
  • Add the garlic and cook until just starting to turn golden brown (1 to 2 minutes).
  • Pour garlic and oil into a heatproof bowl.
  • Set up the grill and preheat to high.
  • When grill is ready, brush some oil on the grill grate.
  • Place tomatoes cut side down on the hot grate and grill until nicely browned (3-5 minutes).
  • Rotate 45 degrees after 2 minutes to create the crosshatch marks on tomatoes.
  • Turn the tomatoes with tongs so they sit with the cut side facing up.
  • Spoon the fried garlic into the tomatoes.
  • Grill until the bottoms are nicely browned (3-5 minutes).
  • Transfer to a serving plate, grate the cheese over the tomatoes, and sprinkle with thyme.
  • Serve immediately.
