Blue-Crusted Tomatoes

Recipe from: Bon Appétit, July 2008
Servings: 6

The flavors of two classic steakhouse menu items—blue cheese dressing and stewed tomatoes—are combined in one incredible, simple-to-prepare grilled dish.

½ cup fine dry breadcrumbs
1 tablespoon olive oil
12 medium tomatoes
¾ cup crumbled blue cheese, about 3 ounces

Prepare 1 side of barbeque, high heat, leaving opposite side unlit if gas grill or without coals if charcoal grill.

Mix breadcrumbs and olive oil in small bowl, mashing to coat. Cut top ¼ from each tomato. Sprinkle tomatoes with salt and pepper. Top each with 1 tablespoon blue cheese. Sprinkle with breadcrumb mixture.

Arrange tomatoes, topping side up, on unlit side of grill. Cover grill and cook tomatoes until slightly soft and cheese melts, about 13 minutes. Serve immediately.
