Grilled Tomatoes

Have you ever heard of such a thing before?  In this month's Whole Living magazine, they do a "burger" of just grilled tomatoes and cheddar cheese.  I decided to one-up them.  (Also, it doesn't show this in the online version, but in the magazine they have pictures of someone grilling veggies straight up on the grill, including onions in rings.  That drives me freaking crazy! No one can do that!  I use foil or a basket every time, and I don't lose anything through the cracks.  But, I digress...)

I decided to do regular veggie burgers with grilled tomatoes, cheddar, and then my lovely husband brought home some rosemary foccacia bread on a whim, so we used that for buns.

Insanity, your name is this burger.

To grill some tomatoes yourself, it is pretty easy.  Start by getting a large, firm tomato, and cutting it into slices.

If you don't work as a magazine food stylist, get a piece of foil, and spray it with some cooking spray.  Spread out your tomatoes in one layer.

BBQ over medium high heat for 5-7 minutes, checking for doneness.  Add to burger and enjoy! 


  1. The Laughlin raised bed is flourishing! What a wonderful gift. They will be able to grill their own tomatoes soon, thanks to you. I sure do like that little tomato knife.

  2. Thanks! My mom got it for me, I think at TJ Maxx or somewhere like that. :)
