We only have 2 tomato plants but we have a gorgeous, plentiful tomato crop. All winter long I long for fresh tomatoes, now finally they are ready. We have enough to share with friends. My favorite use for fresh tomatoes is the good old BLT. I could eat one every day during the season. Since we have such a good amount I am looking to use them other ways. Today I am sharing one of those tomato recipes, a tasty side dish!
British Broiled Tomatoes
1 large ripe tomato
Salt and pepper
1 clove garlic, crushed or minced
1/2 cup grated cheese
2 Tablespoons butter
1/4 cup fresh parsley
Wash tomato. Cut in half, drain on paper towels cut side down for 20 minutes. Place tomato halves cut side up in baking dish. Season with salt and pepper and garlic. Sprinkle with cheese, dot with butter and top with parsley. Place under broiler until cheese is bubbly about 3 minutes, watch closely. Serves two.
Have a great week!

I loved to stay with my Aunt Dorothy during my childhood. She was a great cook and used to give me freedom in the kitchen, teaching me along the way. She made recipes from our Norwegian heritage, along with pies, homemade doughnuts, yeast bread and cinnamon rolls.
