  • 4 Pure Flavor® Heirloom Tomatoes
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 ½ cups fresh basil leaves, chopped
  • ⅔ cup fresh breadcrumbs
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 2 tbsp fresh thyme leaves
  • 2 tsp salt
  • Pepper, to taste


Step 1

Slice the tops off tomatoes and remove seeds.

Step 2

Mix garlic, basil, and thyme in a small bowl. Whisk in the oil, then the breadcrumbs to make a thick paste.

Step 3

Preheat the grill to medium-high heat.

Step 4

Spread the cut side of each tomato evenly with the herb mixture, letting some fall into the cavities where the seeds were removed.

Step 5

Set the tomatoes on the grill and cover. Cook until the tomatoes are bubbling on top, and the bread crumb mixture is golden, about 10 minutes.

Step 6

Transfer the tomatoes to a platter, season with pepper, then let sit for at least 10 minutes before serving.
