20 Ways To Eat: A Tomato #20

Last but not least… Gratin. According to eatingwell.com, where I got this recipe from, gratin is any dish topped with cheese or breadcrumbs mixed with butter, then heated until browned, in this case tomatoes.

Honestly. They had me at cheese…

Tomato Gratin

Ingredients

  • 4 slices whole-grain bread, torn into quarters
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/3 cup finely shredded Pecorino Romano, or Parmesan cheese
  • 4 medium tomatoes, sliced

Preheat oven to 450°F. Coat a shallow 2-quart baking dish with nonstick spray.

Place bread in a food processor and pulse until coarse crumbs form. Add garlic, oil and cheese; pulse to combine. Spread the seasoned breadcrumbs on a baking sheet and bake until beginning to brown, about 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, layer tomato slices in the prepared baking dish, sprinkling each layer with basil, pepper and salt. Bake the tomatoes for 10 minutes; sprinkle with the toasted breadcrumbs, and bake for 10 minutes more. Serve immediately.
