Yield: 8 servings

4 medium to large almost-ripe tomatoes, cut in half horizontally

1 teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon white pepper

½ cup vinaigrette, such as basil vinaigrette (recipe follows)

4 tablespoons (½ stick) butter

1 cup Italian-seasoned bread crumbs

4 or 5 sprigs fresh basil, for garnish

1. Preheat the broiler.

2. Arrange the tomato halves cut side up on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt and white pepper. Spoon 1 tablespoon vinaigrette over each half.

3. Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat, and add the bread crumbs. Stir to coat and remove from the heat; do not brown. Divide the crumbs over the tomato halves.

4. Broil 4 to 5 inches from the heat for several minutes to heat through and brown the crumbs. Serve hot, at room temperature or cold. Garnish with the fresh basil.
