French Fridays with Dorie: Tomatoes Provencal


Simple & delicious!

This week's French Fridays with Dorie challenge is for Tomatoes Provencal.  They're a super easy way to use a bumper crop of summer tomatoes and you can use any variety of herbs you like.  We used Heirloom Tomatoes, Garlic Infused Olive Oil, and Herbes de Provence.  We roasted the tomato halves in individual pie plates and served them with grilled steak, lobster tails, and au gratin potatoes for John's birthday dinner.  They're so good and would make a great side dish for almost anything - breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

Bon Appetit!

  1. Happy Birthday, John. Where's the cake, Susan? We need to see what you baked for John this year. Were your tomatoes yellow? This week's recipe was a good one and I enjoyed TP for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I suffered garlicky breath for three days. Call me crazy, but those animals look like large goats. (I realize they are sheep) Happy Fourth of July to you both.

  5. Gorgeous tomatoes, Susan! And happy birthday wishes to John! Who cooked his birthday dinner? Mark always wants to cook mine, but his real gift is letting me cook my own, as I have so much fun doing it! ~ David
