Tips and variations

Baked tomato slices can be served as a vegetable side dish or as a meatless main dish.

For an Italian-style burger, top a fried or grilled burger with one or more baked tomato slices.

Leftover baked tomatoes will be wet but are still tasty. Chop up leftover tomatoes and mix them in a pasta or rice salad, or add them to pizza or soup.
