Yield: 1 servings
|2||Ripe but firm tomatoes; (about 1 pound)|
|¼ cup||Dried bread crumbs|
|2 tablespoons||Chopped fresh basil|
|2 tablespoons||Olive oil; preferably extra|
|1 teaspoon||Finely chopped garlic|
|Freshly ground black pepper|
Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Core the tomatoes and cut them in half crosswise. Gently squeeze out the seeds. Sprinkle the cut sides of the tomato with salt and set them, cut side down, in a colander to drain for 5 to 10 minutes. Combine the bread crumbs, basil, olive oil, and garlic in a small bowl. Mix with a fork until well blended.
Season to taste with pepper. Place the tomatoes, cut side up, in a baking dish in which they fit comfortably. Divide the topping evenly among the tomatoes. The tomatoes may be prepared to this point up to 1 day in advance. Bake until the tomatoes are soft and the topping is golden brown, about 25 minutes. Transfer carefully to serving plates. Serve hot or at room temperature.
