I felt like this was almost there, but didn't quite hit the mark. I didn't have gratin dishes, so I used my glass 9x13 baking dish. It was more watery than savory and I was left wanting more flavor and spice. I served it with salad and crusty bread.

After reading the ingredients I decided it would be a little too simple for my family's taste buds. I increased the amount of garlic to 4 cloves. I replaced the parsley with a 1/2 tsp of Italian seasoning and added it to the melted butter and oil instead of mixing it with the breadcrumbs. Then I added the breadcrumbs and minced garlic to the skillet. Before I put the final topping of breadcrumbs, I sprinkled freshly grated Parmesan cheese on top of the tomatoes. I omitted the salt because I used salted butter. I also did not add the balsamic vinegar. I served this with steamed broccoli and a crab cake. The only reason I did not give this recipe 5 stars is because I changed it. For those who like simple pleasures, I am sure this recipe is outstanding as is.

This recipe was fabulous! It was ridiculously easy to prepare and the taste was delicious (even my picky-eater husband told me it was "a keeper"). I paired it up with buttered egg noodles. The whole thing was YUM!

This was edible, but bland and boring. I will not be making it again.

This was so buttery and delicious! I can't imagine it being bland, as it was on the verge of being too salty. Can't wait for leftovers tonight!

Loved this recipe!  Came together quick for a weeknight meal, wonderful flavor! I served it with asparagus that I roasted in the oven drizzled with balsamic and lemon zest. We will be adding this into our regular weeknight rotation!
