Tomatoes w/ Asiago Cheese and Fresh Herbs

When tomatoes are at their ripest and sweetest, that's the time to make this recipe...


3 medium beefsteak tomatoes, sliced 1/4-inch thick
1/4 cup coarse fresh breadcrumbs
1/4 cup finely grated Asiago cheese
1 Tablespoon finely chopped fresh Italian parsley
1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper


1. Position a rack 6-inches from the broiler unit and preheat the broiler.

2. Arrange sliced tomatoes on a rimmed baking sheet, slightly overlapping.

3. In a small bowl, combine breadcrumbs, cheese, parsley, thyme and olive oil. Sprinkle evenly over the tomatoes. Give the tomatoes a good sprinkle of salt and pepper.

4. Broil until the breadcrumbs are a deep, golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Serve immediately.


*Use the best tomatoes that you can find for this recipe. Straight from the Farmer's Market is best!

    Just made these using campari tomatoes and fresh basil from my garden. YUM! Next time I’ll be putting a poached egg on top…
