Method

  1. A big platter of these tomatoes goes well with grilled meat or fish, or serve them as a starter with cured meats and crusty bread.
  2. Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Toast the bread, then remove the crusts and break it up into the food processor to make crumbs. Add the thyme, chives or parsley, oil and garlic, then pulse briefly to mix.
  3. Halve the tomatoes and put in one layer in a shallow ovenproof dish. Spread each cut side with a little mustard, then sprinkle a little of the crumb mix on the top. Bake for 15-20 mins until the topping is crunchy and lightly browned.

I'm not keen on tomatoes, so I used large flat mushrooms instead. I kept the breadcrumb mix the same and cooked the mushrooms for the length of time given. It worked really well and my guests loved them!

very tasty and easy to make. I subsituted the thyme for tarragon and it was just so tasty. Will definately be making this again.

These are fabulous, I've made them several times as they are so easy - they are a lovely side dish or great on a buffet table.
