NEW! - Tomatoes Provencial

A true italian dish both in flavor and preparation. If looking for an unusual but attractive side dish, this is it.
Submitted By: Bobbie Sue Baker
2-medium size tomatoes
2 t. mustard (you may add more according to your liking of mustard)
pinch of salt
dash of ground pepper
dash of ground cayenne pepper (fresh if possible)

1/4 c. gourmet or homemade bread crumbs
1/4 c. freshly grated parmesan cheese (not in a purchased shaker, believe
me fresh is worth it and anything you don't use will last for your next
making of spaghetti or garlic bread)

Slice tomatoes in half and spread with mustard. Sprinkle with salt,
pepper, and cayenne pepper. Mix bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, and melted
butter well. Spread crumb mixture over each tomato half. Place each tomato

are golden brown and tomatoes are slightly tender. This dish serves 4.
