Heirloom Tomato Gratin Recipe

Good evening all,

Living in the state of New Jersey, otherwise known as the Garden State, I am always looking for new and different things to do with the delicious vegetables that the local farm stands produce. Thank God for them and their wonderful produce!

Recently I bought the biggest, reddest Jersey tomatoes I think I've ever had and needed something to do with them. Most of the time I bake them in the oven at 350 degrees for 15 minutes with a pat of butter, salt and thyme on them. But I've done it so often the hubby isn't real excited about them any more and I knew I needed to come up something a little different.

This recipe for "Heirloom Tomato Gratin" that I found in my Woman's Day magazine was out of this world! It was quick and easy and I already had all the basic ingredients needed to make it. I'd highly recommend it. Check it out and enjoy!

Oh, and if you are worried about problems with tomatoes making people sick, either buy the tomatoes at a farm stand who grows them in a green house, grow your own, or substitute green peppers or zucchini. I think the tomatoes will work best though.

I'll be posting my first contest on Blessings from Above in the next few days! Look for a chance to win Robin Gunn's latest Sisterchick book, Sisterchicks Goes Brit! Stay tuned for more details!

Denise, thanks for the interview with Robin. She sounds like an interesting author and I think I'll look for her books. I'm always looking for a good book. Thanks also for the tomato recipe - I need all the ways to eat Tomato I can get!
