Notes

  • 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.
