Herbed Grilled Tomatoes


  • 2 medium tomatoes - halved crosswise
  • 2 tsps. Dijon mustard
  • 4 Tbs. bread crumbs
  • 4 basil leaves - shredded
  • 1 tsp. (or 1/4 tsp. dried) fresh thyme - oregano or rosemary ok
  • 2 tsps. grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 Tb. extra virgin olive oil
  • freshly ground black pepper


Brush half of oil over sides and bottoms of tomatoes. Brush tops with mustard.

Combine cheese, bread crumbs, herbs; sprinkle on top of tomatoes.

Drizzle on rest of oil to dampen bread-crumb topping. Add pepper.

Put tomatoes on grill, cut side up; cover.

Grill till skin shrinks from top of tomatoes and tomatoes are soft but not mushy - 10-20 minutes, depending on heat of grill. (Alternate methods: Bake in preheated 450-degree oven 15-20 minutes. Or broil 5-10 minutes.)
