Broiled Herbed Tomatoes More Recipes Like This

British Side recipes

Ingredients: Metric Units
6 large ripe tomatoes
salt, pepper to taste
dash cayenne pepper
bread crumbs
chopped parsley
chopped tarragon
chopped chervil
It's a right English fry-up, just waiting to happen. A little of this, a little of that - use your own judgment for what feels right to you. I apologize for the lack of units here; there’s only so much you can do with a grandma’s recipe. If you don't have fresh herbs, try substituting seasoned breadcrumbs.

Halve tomatoes. Sprinkle each half with salt, pepper, and a little cayenne.

Mix bread crumbs with parsley, tarragon, and chervil. Dot with bits of butter.

Broil until crumbs are brown and the tomatoes are hot.

If your tomatoes are short enough, you can broil them in the toaster oven, which makes a nice addition to a bona fide English fry-up. Serve it with a fried egg, fried toast, and a banger (sausage) or a slice of Canadian bacon or ham. Wash it down with white tea – black tea like English Breakfast with milk and sugar and pip pip Cheerio, it’s a British B & B in your very own dining room.
