Burst in Your Mouth Baked Tomatoes

4 ripe vine-repined tomatoes
2 tbsps. olive oil, more for drizzling and tossing
Kosher salt and fresh ground pepper
3/4 cup panko bread crumbs
1/4 fresh Parmesan
1 tbsp. finely chopped Parsley
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 shallot, finely chopped
Pinch red pepper flakes

Pre-heat oven to 450F degrees
 Hubby bought these tomatoes all on his own.  I think I'll keep him . . . :)

Cut the tomatoes core to core (don't look at the top ones on the left where I wasn't paying attention) and scoop out the flesh and discard (or save for another recipe).

Combine the olive oil, salt & pepper, panko breadcrumbs, Parmesan, Parsley, garlic, shallot and red pepper flakes

Scoop a spoonful of the panko mixture . . . 

. . . . into each tomato.  Put in pre-heated oven and bake for 20-30 minutes

or bake until golden brown

This recipe couldn't be any easier, quick too.  The Neely's named them "Baked Tomatoes" but I added the "Burst in Your Mouth" just because that's exactly what happens.

 All the delicious flavors from the Parmesan, garlic and olive olive along with the tomatoes, they all explode in your mouth, the panko adds the crunch and it's SOOOO awesomely delicious, wonderful things are happening in your mouth, I just can't have enough!

 We saw the Neely's make these on their show a couple of Saturdays ago, hubby and both agreed they looked good enough to make.  This is our 2nd time having them and this has definitely become a favorite and get this, I've never been a fan of tomatoes!!    Hope you're having a great weekend and remember to savor every moment!
