Baked Seasoned Tomatoes

Last night we had delicious burgers from Omaha Steaks (Thanks Katie for the gift card!!!), Tater Tots and I decided to use up a large portion of the tomatoes from the garden on baked tomatoes. I sorta made it up but loosely based on some recipes I found online. It was the highlight of our dinner and tonight we're re-using the rest with rotini.

In a bowl mix 1 cup of bread crumbs, italian seasonings, pepper, and parmesan cheese. Slice tomatoes into thick slices - don't use top part or bottom and don't core. Place a layer in a glass baking dish - drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar and spread some of the topping on. repeat layers - we did 3 and it was perfect! Bake at 350 for 35 minutes. Increase to 425 until golden brown - about 5 minutes

When it came out of the oven. I put some fresh shredded parmesan on top and returned to oven to melt.
