Simple and delicious! This is perfect for those warm summer months when tomatoes from the garden are so abundant. It's not only vibrant in color but also in taste. I combine my olive oil and minced garlic together and drizzle that over top while the tomatoes are grilling. After they come off I sprinkle with a little salt and pepper then top with fresh basil. Sometimes I add either fresh mozzarella for a "grilled caprese" or shredded Parmesan although they're great plain. No matter what you do these taste wonderful and can be a great appetizer or side dish. The leftovers (if there are any) are great on thick crusty bread! Read More

I LOVE grilled tomatoes! I always throw them on the grill after the meat is almost done with the same temperature and method. I normally just do the olive oil and some kosher or regular salt. I will have to try adding some fresh garlic next time to see how that affects the taste. I am just a tad afraid of the fresh garlic burning. It really doesn't need it. Roma tomatoes tend to work the best just cut in half. If you have never grilled a tomato you must try. Read More

I had a couple of on the vine tomatoes that I used for this. My result wasn t all that great but in fairness to the recipe it could have been my tomatoes. It s nearly impossible to get a decent tomato in Ohio this time of year. So I m giving this recipe the benefit of the doubt and giving it 5 stars. I ll try it again when garden tomatoes are available to see if this recipe really is 5 stars. Read More

Very good but we added a little parmesan after they were done. Also the skins were a little tough. Maybe it was the tomatoes I used. They were from my mom's garden. Read More

Love these, made as is, they are great. I sometimes make them and add Parmesan cheese to the topping, then I don't flip them on the grill, but cook about 5-6 minutes over medium heat and remove. A great way to use extra summer roma tomatoes and add color to the dinner plate. Read More
