We love a good heirloom tomato salad as much as anyone, but it's nice to remember the magic that a few breadcrumbs and some grated cheese can bring to these sweet summer fruits when you make this broiled tomatoes recipe.

  • 6 ripe plum tomatoes, halved lengthwise
  • 1/4 cup plain breadcrumbs
  • 3 tablespoons salted butter, softened
  • 3 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


Preheat broiler. Line a rimmed sheet pan with aluminum foil, shiny side up, and set an oven rack to the top position. Arrange tomato halves in pan.
In a small bowl, stir together remaining ingredients. Sprinkle mixture over tomatoes, then transfer to top shelf of oven and broil until nicely browned, 3 to 5 minutes.
