  • “This is a wonderful, easy and delicious side.I followed the advice of some and put some minced garlic and onion to the top of the tomatoe before adding the bread crumbs and parmesan cheese which I mixed a little melted butter.Yummo! Fixed this along with stuffed bell peppers and broccoli.Thank you.”

  • “I’ve been serving these for years because me family just loves them.This time I added a bit of melted butter (could also use EVOO) some salt and pepper and substituted dill for the thyme because we served them with fresh cod – YUM!!”

  • “I added some finely chopped onion and minced garlic.I just sprinkled it on before the bread crumbs.Super easy and super tasty.”

  • “This was so yummy!I left out the breadcrumbs & added a bit of garlic salt & basil & I followed the other posters ideas about the olive oil.I’ll definitely be making these delicious tomatoes again.”

  • “This was sooo good!I followed other posters ideas and put on olive oil, garlic salt, a tiny bit of sugar and salt and pepper.This was excellent! And so easy to make and quick cooking! Thanks for posting Pixie!”

  • “You definitely should at least like tomatoes if you try this recipe…and I LOVE tomatoes!I drizzle with olive oil first, then add the rest.A dash of garlic powder and a bit of pepper doesn’t hurt, either. SO delicious!”

  • “we fond this to be a very good side dish..very different from the norm and enjoyed it a lot..Thanks”

  • “im not a fan of tamotoes.so it wasnt very appealing to me.i also added a bit of sweetener with the breadcrumbs. and i think it didnt taste very nice cause i use those plastic tasting ones you get frm supermarkets”

  • “This really helped me use up all the tomatoes this year.I did add some salt and pepper, out of habit.I will make this again!”

  • “These made an excellent side dish for dinner tonight. It’s always nice to have something a little different! Very simple to prepare…we used dried basil instead of thyme and italian style breadcrumbs. Very tasty! “

  • “Awesome with those big home-grown tomatoes!!I used thyme and oregano.Terrific side dish.”

  • “We liked this a lot.I added a touch of salt and drizzled with a high quality olive oil before baking and at the end of the cooking time, I put the oven on broil to just brown the tops.Thanks!”

  • “This was so great for a really healthy dish.I have to admit that I missed the fat (like mixing the bread crumbs with butter, or drizzling with olive oil), but if you’re a tomato lover, you’ll love this!Thanks for the recipe Fluffy!”

  • “Wonderful and quick side dish! I traded the thyme for a bit of oregano and it was a big success for company coming to dinner. Thanks Fluffy!”

  • “Wonderful, easy recipe.Definitely use fully ripe tomatoes.These would be great too topped with mozzarella cheese as Renegade’s husband suggested and maybe omit the thyme and use Italian breadcrumbs.But these are delicious as is. :)”

  • “Very refreshing morning breakfast starter.The thyme flavour went right through the tomatoes.Easy to make and a family keeper for us.Thanks for posting Fluffy.”

  • “I made these tonight to go with Merlot’s Breakfast casserole and they were excellent!Wow.. so easy and so tasty too!I didn’t change a thing and can tell you I will be making this again!Thanks Fluffy!”

  • “Hey, this gets 5 stars from me simply by ease in preparing a tomato recipe…. (I have a bumper crop of extra tomatoes this year!)Let me first say that I am not a tomato-eating sort of person.But I love growing them, and my husband loves tomatoes.I served this dish tonight.My husband loved it, but his input was:Next time, add more cheese (perhaps mozarella or swiss?). He also said that crumbled bacon bits would be a super boost…His last word:the very best tasting of these baked tomatoes were the ones that were the ripest.Thanks, fluffy, for a great tomato recipe.”
