Topped With Feta
by SuperUser Account
- 4 small tomatoes
- 2 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
- 2 tbsp. olive oil
- 1 clove garlic, crushed or grated
- ¼ tsp. Cajun Creole Seasoning
- dash of crushed red chili flakes (optional)
- ¼ cup of crumbled feta cheese
- ¼ cup of italian bread crumbs
- 2 tbsp. fresh chopped basil
- freshly ground salt and pepper to taste
Preheat your grill to between 300°F and 350°F.
Whisk together the vinegar, oil, garlic, Cajun Creole, and optional crushed red chili.
Slice the tops off of your tomatoes, remove the hard core section if needed. Dip the tomatoes into the oil mixture to coat on all sides.
Grill the tomatoes, cut side down over direct heat, for 5 minutes, or until they’re becoming tender, basting with the balsamic mixture.
While the tomatoes are grilling, combine the crumbs, feta and basil.
Flip the tomatoes and brush liberally with the balsamic mixture, season with salt and pepper then grilling for another 2 to 5 minutes. Top with the feta mixture and allow it to heat through.
Serve immediately as an appetizer or with your meal.
Tomatoes are a fun conundrum. They're technically a fruit, but they're used in mostly savoury applications, which confuses most into thinking they're a vegetable, myself included. But whatever they are, I love using tomatoes in my cooking, mostly in sauces and thick stews, cold in salads and they're at their best in Bruschetta!! This recipe for tomatoes is delicious and served hot. These tomatoes are delicious and served hot.
