I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed my sister and her fiancee’s visit this weekend. I am also feeling better than I have in weeks. The awful flu/cold thing I have is still holding on by a cough, but I have most of my energy back. During my illness I lost my appetite and didn’t want to even drink anything. It seems my like my love of chocolate and diet pepsi deserted me. In fact, it’s now been two weeks since the yummy liquid has passed my lips.
So, when I saw the Healthy Eats post on Facebook and read the Garlic Parmesan Broiled Tomatoes recipe, my stomach didn’t bunch up into knots and I thought yum. And under $5, even better. Everyone loved it, except my 13 year old son, but he doesn’t count because he’s a teenage boy who has never liked tomatoes of any kind. Here’s Robin Miller’s recipe:
Garlic Parmesan Broiled Tomatoes
4 beefsteak or other vine-ripened tomatoes
1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt and black pepper to taste
8 tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
Preheat broiler. Halve tomatoes crosswise (through the equator) and place flesh-side up on a baking sheet. Brush tops with olive oil and season with salt and freshly-ground pepper. Combine Parmesan cheese and garlic powder in a small bowl. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of the mixture on each tomato half. Broil for 5 to 7 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown and the tomatoes soften. Sprinkle with chopped parsley just before serving.
