Ingredients

  • 150 gr / 5oz fresh breadcrumbs not too fine ( I made mine with italian-style ciabatta bread)
  • 2 tbsp Bertolli Light spread melted
  • 4 tbsp chopped fresh basil
  • 1 garlic clove finely minced
  • 4 beefsteak tomatoes
  • salt and black pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375F/190C.
  • Put the bread crumbs, basil, garlic, Bertolli Light spread in a mixing bowl. Mix well until the ingredients are combined and the bread crumbs are well coated with spread. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Slice off the top of each tomato, scoop out some of the pulp and arrange on a baking tray or muffin tin.
  • Fill the tomatoes with the breadcrumbs mixture.
  • Bake for about 10-12 mins, or until tomatoes are soften and crispy on top.
  • Serve warm or at room temperature with your favorite main or with a salad and toasted bread on the side. Enjoy!
