Grilled Tomatoes

All right I know I have been a slacker about cooking lately, but I have 2 good reasons. 1. Michigan State is in the final four and now the championship game! and 2. The weather has been so nice that we are grilling every night.  Now I know you don't want me to explain putting spices on a hunk of meat and then throwing it on the grill, so that is why there have been no recipes.

The grilled tomatoes are a recipe Abe and I came up with while overseas.  Tomatoes were the cheapest thing to buy, so we ate a ton of them.  One night we threw them on the grill with some extras, and holy cow they were good.

Plum tomatoes
olive oil
3 garlic cloves, minced

  1. Slice tomatoes in half.
  2. In a prep bowl, pour about 1/4 cup olive oil.  Add minced garlic.
  3. Grill tomatoes cut side down for 2-3 minutes.  Flip over, spoon on olive oil and garlic mixture.   Just eyeball the amount, you really can't mess these up.  Grill another 2-3 minutes, until tomatoes are soft.
  4. Top with feta for the last minute or so of cooking 

THE VERDICT:  Super easy, and always a hit.  We make these at least once a week now.
