Scalloped Tomatoes


It is hard to keep up on posting when one is one vacation.  I am late with my Barefoot Blogger postings.  I am  playing catch-up in July!  Since I am on the road, I will be brief.


Barefoot Bloggers were challenged to make two recipes and post them before the end of the month.  Well, I am late....but here is the first one, Scalloped Tomatoes.  The recipe is available here at Food Network.

Wonderful flavors....fresh tomatoes, basil...parmesan.  The only way this could have been improved would have been to have tomatoes fresh from the garden!  The best part for me, was the top with the crunchy crouton and delicious parmesan, followed by the warm and sweet tomato and basil.  Very, very tasty. 


When I make this again, I will seed and drain the tomatoes.  I think the beauty of this is the crunch.  I preferred those "bites" to the stuffing like consistency that was found beneath my favorite part.

  3. I'd never heard of scalloped tomatoes, yet this recipe has shown up on two blogs I read in 2 days - since my tomatoes are coming in I may have to give it a try.

  4. Scalloped tomatoes sound fabulous Kate. Topped with Paremsan should only make them better.

  5. Kate, I agree. The croutons really made this dish. Next time I am going to add more. Also, good idea about seeding and juicing the tomatoes a little bit.Happy 4th!

  6. I am not a huge tomato fan, unless of course it is tomato sauce or salsa. But this looks really good.
