baked tomatoes

I love tomatoes!  I love them in every form- sauces, salsas, fresh, in soups, etc…. Something about baking them though makes it one of my favorite ways to eat them.  Baking them concentrates the juices and lends to much more intense, sweet, tasty bites. Adding the panko breadcrumbs on top adds the perfect amount of texture to the tomatoes and intensifies the flavor even more! You really can’t go wrong!  These Baked Tomatoes are perfect for a side dish or as an appetizer if you use smaller tomatoes.  They take about 25 minutes to make, only 5 of which is active preparation.
