Ingredients

  • Tomatoes- 6 tomatoes more or less depending on the size. Choose tomatoes that are just ripe, red but, still firm.
  • Garlic– 6 cloves sliced.
  • Olive Oil– 2 tablespoons. Plus additional as needed for grilling. Seasonings as desired- This can include Italian Seasonings Salt, and/or Pepper. Optional- Parmesan cheese for topping. (YUM!)

Instructions

  • Slice your tomatoes as indicated above. For tomatoes on an outdoor grill, slice the tomatoes in half. Slicing from the top of the tomato to the bottom, rather than across the middle, will help your tomato hold its shape when grilled.
  • Pre-treat your grill for nonstick by brushing oil or using nonstick. Preheat the grill to medium to medium high.
  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix together the oil and the seasonings. Then toss the tomatoes in the oil and seasonings. Place the tomatoes onto the grill. I like to start with the cut sized up to hold on to the juices.
  • Toss the garlic in the small bowl with the remaining oil and seasoning. In a grill pan or small pan on the stove, cook the garlic until it begins to brown (about two minutes).
  • Grill the tomatoes for four to five minutes and then flip them over to finish. It should take no longer than eight to ten minutes total to get a great looking grilled tomato. You can place the garlic and optional cheese on top of the tomatoes before removing the tomatoes from the grill or you can simply serve them together.
  • Allow the tomatoes to cool somewhat before serving as they tend to retain heat on the inside.

Recipe Notes

I mentioned that a tomato that is just ripe, red and firm yet without a lot juice, holds up best when grilling. Also, when grilling smaller tomatoes, you could use a grilling pan to avoid the problem of tomatoes falling through the grates.
Also mentioned was how to prepare your tomatoes for this recipe.
