I love fresh Farmer’s Market tomatoes. Sweet and flavorful – these make a perfect little side dish, though I could just eat a bunch of them and call it a meal…
6 small tomatoes on the vine
2/3 cup parmesan cheese
1 clove garlic, minced
1-2 Tablespoons olive oil
Wash and dry the tomatoes and take them off the vine. Cut off the tops and scoop out a small bit of the juicy part. Then slice a small bit of the bottom so that they stand up by themselves. We don’t want these bad boys to roll away!
Place them in a mini cupcake pan. This is perfect for holding them in place!
In a small bowl combine the parmesan, garlic and season with salt and pepper. Add the olive oil a little at a time, until you get a nice paste.
Place the parm mix on top of the tomatoes.
Broil in the top rack of your oven for 2 minutes. Serve!
The crispy, warm cheese is a perfect match to the acidy tomatoes. A lovely summer treat~!
