Roasted Tomatoes

"Wonderful with all sorts of meats. If it's summer, and the tomatoes are truly good, I could make a meal out of just this, some bread and wine. This also works great as an appetizer."

  1. Excellent! The breadcrumb topping is a lovely balance of flavors. Parmesan, garlic and herbs enhanced by the addition of balsamic vinegar. Off season, I buy "on the vine" tomatoes and put them in a dark cupboard for several days to ripen. I made the recipe using 6 medium size tomatoes but had enough crumbs for 8 medium. Fresh picked summer tomatoes would make this dish "over the top" delicious!


<style>body { background: url(""); background-repeat: repeat-y; }</style> OK, here goes. I live in Athens, Greece. I moved out here many, many years ago from Ottawa, Canada - so I am blessed in having two wonderful heritages! I suffer from compulsive obsessive behaviour with regard to food and my psychiatrist thought it would be a good idea to find a 'society' where many have the same problem and try to find a cure. So far, I've copied a couple of thousand recipes from this site and my psychiatrist has thrown the towel in and refuses to answer the phone when I call. What did I do wrong? Got 3 kids that keep me on the go - 10 and under at this point (2008) - I may not get round to updating this for a few years, so you'll have to do your own maths. I teach English full-time and Greek Cookery part-time. I would like to make the cooking part of it full-time and the English Grammar part of it part-time. That's all for now.
