  • Serves

    serves 4-6

Ripe and juicy tomato slices topped with herbs, butter, and toasty breadcrumbs make a wonderful summer side.


  • 4 cups fresh bread crumbs
  • 14 cup melted butter or extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp. chopped fresh chives
  • 2 tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tbsp. fresh thyme leaves
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 ripe tomatoes, thickly sliced


Step 1

Preheat oven to 375°. Combine bread crumbs, butter (or oil), chives, parsley, thyme leaves, and salt and pepper to taste.

Step 2

Press half the bread crumb mixture into a large baking dish to form a "crust." Bake until lightly golden, about 10 minutes.

Step 3

Remove dish from oven, arrange a layer of tomatoes over bread crumbs, and sprinkle with more bread crumbs. Repeat process until tomatoes are used up, ending with a layer of bread crumbs. Bake until crumbs are golden and tomatoes are warm, about 10 minutes.
