Broiled Tomato Slices
Garden-fresh tomatoes are broiled with a perfect topping made with a combination of sour cream, mayonnaise, onion and dill. Once finished, these Broiled Tomato Slices can be served as an easy summer side dish or a fancy party hors doeuvre.
Servings: 8 people
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 2 Tablespoons grated onion
- 1 teaspoon fresh dill (heaping) or 1/2 teaspoon dried dill
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
- 4-6 tomatoes
In a bowl, mix sour cream, mayonnaise, onion, dill, salt and pepper.
Slice tomatoes in 1/2 inch slices. Arrange on a broiler pan.
Broil tomatoes for a few minutes or until the begin to soften.
Remove tomatoes from oven; top with a spoonful of the sour cream mixture; sprinkle with paprika.
Return the tomatoes to the oven, and continue to broil until golden brown and bubbly.
- This is a great way to use up garden tomatoes.
- I cut my tomatoes about 1/2 inch thick.
- To prevent the tomatoes from rolling around in the pan, slice off a thin slice of the skin on the rounded sides to make it flat.
- Fresh or dried dill can be used: 1 heaping teaspoon fresh dill or 1/2 teaspoon dried dill.
- Refrigerate any leftover broiled tomato topping, and use it later on in the week.
- VERY IMPORTANT: do not walk away from the stove when broiling food. The transition from golden brown to burnt is very quick.
