Tomato Gratin

This dish was a near disaster!  Luckily, it was saved in time and was still very tasty!

1 – 2 pints grape tomatoes

About 1/4 cup finely grated mozzarella cheese

About 1/4 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs

Garlic salt to taste

Pepper to taste

Heat about 1 TBS extra virgin olive oil in a skillet and add the grape tomatoes.  Stir the tomatoes while they cook over medium heat and let them wilt down a bit.  When they become soft and tender, season to taste.  Transfer the tomatoes into a ramekin or oven proof dish.  Sprinkle with the cheese and bread crumbs and place under the broil until the bread crumbs crisp (about 2-3 minutes).  This is where disaster nearly struck.  I left the dish in for a bit too long and had to do a bit of scrapping.  You could also bake the dish if you have a little more time, I’d say about 15 minutes at 350 would do the trick.  I think that parmesan cheese would also be a great choice instead of the mozzarella.  This dish would also be an excellent side for any meal!

(I forgot to take a final product picture of the scraped and rebaked finished product!  But it did look much more appetizing than this last picture!)
