#3736 - Baked Tomato Halves

(by Shirley McNevich)

4 ripe tomatoes
1/3 cup butter (melted)
1 tsp. basil leaves
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. fresh ground black pepper
1 1/4 cups 4C Italian bread crumbs
1 TBSP fresh chopped parsley
1 tsp. salt

Wash tomatoes, removes the stems and cut each tomato in half horizontally. Place them on a greased jelly roll pan (cut sides up). In a bowl add melted butter, basil leaves, garlic powder, pepper, bread crumbs, chopped parsley and salt--stir to mix. Spoon a heaping TBSP of the bread crumb mixture on top of each tomato, using the back of a spoon to spread it out. Bake at 350 degrees 15-17 minutes or until heated through (but still firm).
