Instruction. Gratin of tomatoes.
Prepared on the basis of cherry tomatoes, baked under a crunchy aromatic crust of bread crumbs, cheese and fresh herbs, gratin is simple in composition, but it turns out very juicy, fragrant and delicious. This dish is a godsend for cases when you need a hot appetizer, side dish or light dinner.
Grease the baking dish with a thin layer of olive oil. Cut the cherry tomatoes in half. Put the tomatoes in a baking dish. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil, a mixture of Italian herbs (or dried Basil), and salt and ground black pepper to taste. Mix everything well so that the oil and spices are evenly distributed.
Cut the crust from the dried white bread – you won’t need it. Cut the bread into large cubes. You can pre-slightly dry fresh bread in a pan or in the oven. In a blender bowl, place the parsley leaves, garlic cloves, 2 pinches of salt and olive oil.
Whisk everything for a few minutes, until smooth. Add the bread and grate the cheese to a fine crumble. Put the mixture on the tomatoes and distribute evenly.
Place the form in the oven, preheated to 392F (200C) degrees and bake for 12-15 minutes. When the mixture of cheese and bread crumbs is browned, cover the form with foil. Bake the gratin for another 25-30 minutes. Tomato gratin is ready. Bon Appetit!
