large salad tomatoes
large garlic cloves, cut lengthwise into slivers
fresh rosemary, or 2 teaspoons dried rosemary leaves
freshly ground black pepper
- Heat broiler to 500ºF.
- Cut the tomatoes crosswise in half and place them, cut-side up, on a broiling pan or shallow baking pan. Stick the garlic slivers into the tomatoes. Sprinkle with the rosemary, salt, and a few grinds of pepper. Drizzle with the oil.
- Broil about 3 inches from the heat for 10 to 15 minutes or just until the tomatoes release their juices and the garlic begins to brown. Spoon the pan juices over the tomatoes before serving.
- Serve as a side dish for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
