Fresh Grilled Tomatos:
If yer like me, ya got yerself a bumper crop of fresh âmaters growing in the garden. Ever splitâem and putâem on the grill? Câmon! Yer gonna love it! Everythingâs good on the grill! Including oatmeal (but thatâs another messy story). Here’s how easy it is to make Fresh Grilled tomatoes:
- Tomatoes (how many are up to how hungry you is)
- A dab of olive oil
- A dash of salt
- Fresh ground pepper if ya like
- Garlic powder
Hell, read onâ¦ you can improvise with your favorite stuff.
Take yer âmaters and slice them in half through the middle, not through the core, but the fat middle. Try to cut’em straight. Donât wantâem to get all wobbly-like on the grill.
Putâem on a plate butt-side down. Take a dab of olive oil on yer finger and rub it over the open faces. Sprinkle on a dash of salt, some fresh-cracked pepper and some garlic powder.
Putâem on the grill over medium heat face side down for a good few minutes. Keep an eye onâem. Ya donât wantâem to flame up too much. Youâll know when their ready to flip when they start to get goodânâsoft around the face side down.
Now flipâem over onto their butts! This is where I put on some fresh shredded basil leaves and some cheese (ya can go without the basil if ya like). I used Feta cheese âcuz we were outta the Bleu. But ya can use youâre favorite (just donât use those individually-wrapped American cheese slices. That ainât cheese. Thatâs what they make rain ponchos and safety patrol belts out of!)
Close the grill lid to melt the cheese. And when those suckers are soft or splittinâ on the bottom, theyâre ready fer eatinâ!
Dang, this recipe is so easy and, Lordy, they taste soooo gooood!
