Cooking Tips:

The thicker you slice your tomatoes the longer the cook time. The perfect slice is about 1/4-1/2 inch.

Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.

Can you make ahead?

Fridge: After tomatoes cools off, place in an airtight container in the fridge for 7 days max.

Reheating: Pop in a 350-degree oven for 10-15 minutes.

Substitution Options:

Panko is a Japanese bread crumb that’s bigger than our traditional bread crumbs. I find it gives a better texture and you less. However, you can use a traditional or gluten free bread crumb.
