Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 deg F.
  • Lightly oil a baking dish large enough to accommodate 8 tomato halves laid next to each other (depending on the size of your tomatoes, a 8 x 8" dish is roughly the right size)
  • Remove the core from the tomatoes and cut them in half crosswise. Over a bowl, gently remove the seeds from the cavities using your fingers.
  • Arrange tomato halves in the baking dish cut side up. If any halves are wobbly or tilted, trim a bit off the bottom so that they sit flat in the dish. Season with a pinch of salt and freshly ground pepper.
  • In a bowl, mix together the bread crumbs, cheese, garlic, parsley, salt and pepper. Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil and toss well.
  • Spoon the seasoned crumbs into the tomato halves, pushing down into the cavities and mounding on top. Drizzle the rest of the olive oil over the top.
  • Bake for 20 minutes, or until the topping has browned and the tomatoes are hot but still keep their shape. Serve hot.

  1. Suite à de vigoureux échanges avec des Provençales, dans leurs tomates dites provençales, elles ne mettent qu’ail,persil, sel, poivre et filet d’huile d’olive… mais ta recette me semble bien goûtue !

      Indeed, there are many versions of tomates Provencales, and omitting the breadcrumbs would make it gluten-free. Omitting the cheese would make it vegan! But that’s the way I like mine 🙂
      This being said, the French culinary reference Escoffier apparently includes not only breadcrumbs and cheese but anchovies and beef fat!
