Grilled Tomatoes

Recipe by C and Ds Mommy
READY IN: 20mins


  • 2
    large firm tomatoes (I just use the largest reddest ones I can find)
  • 1
    tablespoon fresh basil, chopped (1 teaspoon dried)
  • 1
    teaspoon fresh oregano, chopped (1/2 Teaspoon dried)
  • 1
    tablespoon minced fresh garlic (1 teaspoon granulated garlic powder)
  • 1
    teaspoon fresh parsley, chopped (1 teaspoon dried)
  • 14
    cup reduced-fat feta cheese, crumbled
  • 14 - 12
    cup grated cheese (mozzarella or cheddar are what I've used or you can try swiss but then omit the feta)


  • Wash the tomatoes. Cut them in half.
  • Mix together the basil, oregano, pepper, parsley. (and garlic if you are using the dried stuff).
  • On the cut surface of the tomatoes, sprinkle the herb mixture(add the garlic now if using fresh).
  • Sprinkle the feta cheese on top and top with the grated cheese if using.
  • Place on a preheated to low temperature grill or in toaster oven.
  • Grill or cook for about 10 - 15 minutes. Using tongs, carefully remove the tomatoes onto a plate. (They will be soft, so be gentle so as not to squish them!).
  • An alternative cooking method is to loosely cover them with foil to make removal from the grill a bit easier. I wrap the foil up around the tomato so it has a "handle" at the top.
