Grilled Goat Cheese Tomatoes
This recipe is simply divine. Because you do not flip the tomatoes to grill on both sides, a thinner slice works well here.
Makes 4 servings
eight 1/2 inch thick slices beefsteak tomatoes
olive oil for drizzling
kosher or sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 ounce fresh goat cheese, crumbled (or crumbled feta or blue cheese, cubed Boursin, or mozzarella)
fresh herbs, chopped (optional)
Drizzle the tomato slices with olive oil and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste. Top each tomato with 1 ounce crumbled fresh goat cheese or the cheese of your choice. Sprinkle with chopped fresh herbs, if you like.
Grill directly over a hot fire or on a grill rack until the tomatoes are warmed through and the cheese has melted, 6 to 8 minutes. Serve hot
