Tomatoes!

My garden is massively producing tomatoes and veggies at an alarming rate.
I'll probably have to find a good marinara recipe so I can freeze some.

But tonight, we're having steaks and a salad, and this is our side course:

Broiled Tomatoes
3 large tomatoes
Dash of pepper
3 Tablespoons crumbled blue cheese

Optional version:
Use 2 Tablespoons chopped basil and 3 Tablespoons feta cheese instead of blue cheese

1. Halve and core tomatoes, then sprinkle with pepper.
2. Top with blue cheese (or a layer of fresh chopped basil, then feta cheese on top).
3. Broil for five minutes, or until tops are golden brown.

Sounds yummy! Question: What do you make with the insides of the tomatoes?

I core out the top 1/2 (maybe an inch and a half down) and squeeze out the seeds. I can't eat tomato seeds... it's my little quirk, but I keep the bottom half of the flesh intact and that holds the blue cheese in place.

Glad you liked it... we'll be eating it a lot apparently... more tomatoes are coming into my kitchen each day than they are leaving it!!
