“This is a wonderful side dish to any meal, also a great way to use up any extra tomatoes that you might have. The grated mozza cheese on top is only an option, I have made this many times without using the mozza or cheddar cheese, and they are still delicious. Also if desired these may be broiled under the broiler instead of baked, but I find that broiling causes the crust to burn too fast.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Set oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Prepare a 15-inch cookie sheet with foil, spray with cooking spray.

  4. In a bowl, combine the DRY bread crumbs, 1/4 cup melted butter, Parmesan cheese and black pepper to taste; mix well to combine.
  5. Brush the tomato slices on both sides with the 2 Tbsp melted butter (you might need more butter than 2 Tbsps for this).
  6. Coat the tomato slices in the bread crumb mixture (patting down firmly with hands to seal/coat well).
  7. Place the slices on the prepared baking sheet.
  8. Bake in oven for 12-15 minutes; turn over with spatula, and bake for another 12-15 minutes or more or less depending on desired tomato texture.
