Baked Tomatoes with Parmesan Cheese & Fresh Herbs

Yield: 2 Servings
Total Time:
20 mins
Cooking time will vary depending on the size and firmness of your tomatoes. Keep checking the oven to determine how softly-cooked you want your tomatoes and how crisp your want your cheese to be. Enjoy these as a side dish with scrambled eggs or grilled dishes.


  • 2 medium tomatoes, ripe
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme or herbs


  1. Pre-Heat oven to 450°F. Cut tomatoes in half, place cut side up.

  2. Drizzle olive oil over tomraotes. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Add grated parmesan cheese on top to cover the tomato. Then sprinkle fresh chopped herbs or sprigs on top of cheese.

  3. Bake tomatoes for about 10-15 minutes or until cheese has melted and/or when tomatoes are cooked to your preferred texture. We prefer our baked tomatoes rather soft, spreadable over bread. Yum!
