Enter: Baked Parmesan Tomatoes. Tender, cheesy, herbal, and delicious. They might also be my main path.
While I was making it on a large tomato that you can slice, you can create this plate on a smaller scale as well to get larger pieces. It’s a great way to serve up a unique appetizer or snack to your guests! It is one of those pastries that will still taste delicious when cooled on the appetizer table.
