Baked Cheezy Tomatoes


  • 2 large tomatoes, sliced into ½” rounds
  • ⅓ to ½ C. dairy-free mozzarella shreds (or shred alternative of your choice)
  • 3 T. breadcrumbs (recipe below)
  • ¼ C. fresh basil leaves
  • 2 T. extra virgin olive oil
Breadcrumbs Ingredients:


Breadcrumbs Directions:
  1. Combine all of the ingredients in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until evenly mixed.
  2. Store in an airtight container in the freezer until needed.
Main Recipe Directions:
  1. Pre-heat the oven to broil.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the breadcrumbs and the mozzarella shreds.
  3. Set each of the tomato rounds on a non-stick sheet pan. Place 1-3 leaves of basil on top of each round. Sprinkle the breadcrumb and mozzarella shred mixture over the top so that the mixture mostly covers the tomatoes.
  4. Drizzle the olive oil over the top of the tomatoes.
  5. Set 4″ under the broiler for 2 minutes and check. If the tops have browned, remove from oven. If not, leave under the broiler for one more minute.
  6. Serve immediately or at room temperature. The tomatoes will be soft, so move them carefully using a spatula.
