Herb Roasted Tomato Halves

I am pretty sure that I have mentioned in previous posts that I could eat tomatoes every day.  Well, during peak season, I think I could eat tomatoes three times a day!  Especially farm fresh tomatoes from the Farmers’ Market!  This time I made Herb Roasted Tomato Halves to serve with grilled pork.  The herb crust with Parmesan cheese is so good combined with the sweet tomato.  These are perfect to serve along side any grilled meat or fish.



Herb Roasted Tomato Halves

Servings 2


  • 1 large tomato
  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon Herb De Provence
  • 4 cloves roasted garlic
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoons fresh Italian parsley, minced
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Core tomato and slice in half.  Place tomato in a baking dish.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Combine the remaining ingredients together in a small bowl.  The mixture should hold together when mixed, add more olive oil if needed.   Cover tomato halves with the herb mixture.  Bake for 30  minutes.  Serve hot.

    Roasted Garlic

    To roast garlic, cut the top 1/4 off of a head of garlic.  Place garlic on a square of foil, drizzle with olive oil.  Wrap completely in foil, bake for 55 minutes at 350 degrees.
