Broiled Blue Tomatoes

This tasty side dish takes only 5 minutes to cook up. Tomato slices are topped with blue cheese crumbles and scattered with thyme to give them a perfectly robust flavor. Try them paired with our BBQ meatball sandwich!

  • 4-5 large tomatoes, cut into thick slices
  • 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 10 fresh thyme sprigs
  • splash red wine vinegar
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. In a medium sized roasting pan layer tomato slices.
  2. Drizzle tomatoes with a splash of red wine vinegar and season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle blue cheese and scatter fresh thyme sprigs over the top.
  3. Broil under a 500° F oven until the blue cheese is browned and bubbling, about 4-5 minutes. Set aside for 5 minutes to cool slightly, and serve.
