Baked Parmesan Tomatoes

Gluten Free Living – 2018

Baked Parmesan Tomatoes are awesome. I love tomatoes. Whether in sauce, roasted or fresh, I think tomatoes are my favorite vegetable fruit. 🙂 These lovely jewels are covered in parmesan cheese and sprinkled with salt, pepper, fresh oregano and basil and olive oil before baking. They come out absolutely mouthwatering. The really nice thing about this side dish is it really doesn’t take long to prepare either. You end up with a scrumptious healthy and gluten free side dish that’s perfect for any occasion.

We host a Bible study in our home every Friday night. I usually make the main dish and a couple of other things to go along with it. The week I made these tomatoes, I made up a batch of Paula Deen’s Bacon Cheeseburger Meatloaf and a Shoepeg Corn Dish. It was a real comfort food meal and everyone really enjoyed it. While I make main dishes because I have to, I  make casseroles and side dishes because I love to. Seriously, ask my kids. I’ve always been known as the “casserole queen.” For me, it’s just a lot more fun to find creative ways to make side dishes.

A couple of months ago I was looking through my cookbook recipes for inspiration. Finally, I decided to make roasted tomatoes but with parmesan cheese instead. While I used olive oil (because I love the flavor), you can use avocado oil for this recipe with equally great results. I had quite a bit of fresh oregano and basil in my herb garden so I went with those herbs. Though I had many other herbs to choose from, I decided to keep it simple.

This recipe takes about 10 minutes to get oven ready. That makes it much quicker and easier than many casserole recipes. Plus it only takes about 15 minutes to bake so you can have this side ready in less than 30 minutes. On top of that, this gluten free side dish is healthier and lower calorie than many casseroles too.

This delectable side dish is marvelous for company or holiday dinners, like Easter, Mother’s Day or Father’s Day. Put Baked Parmesan Tomatoes on your menu soon and you’ll see why we enjoyed it so much.
