These were delicious and a great side dish for grilled steak. I cut the tomatoes in half sprinkled them with minced garlic, olive oil and kosher salt along with some basil. I baked them until the skin was a little blistered.


I thought it was a pretty good side, but my husband went wild for these. Tip: add freshly chopped basil to tomatoes after they come out of the oven.


If to be served as appetizers can understand inserting the sliver of garlic in each but, as an addition to the buffet table, was easier for me to mince a clove of elephant garlic and sprinkle over the top plus add some garlic-infused olive oil. I used dried oregano (1/4 tsp. crushed) and, as others, baked for 12 mins. then, topped with chunks of a Greek Feta marinated in olive oil with oregano and basil. Second time, I prep'd about 3 times the recipe and, next day, served the remaining few topped with add'l Feta and popped under broiler for 2 mins. Next time, plan to toss the hot tomatoes with fresh spinach leaves and slivers of carmelized garlic. A versatile recipe - thank you for submitting it.
