Recipe Ingredients for Broiled Summer Squash & Tomatoes

2 small zucchini
2 small yellow squash
4 small tomatoes
1 clove garlic
5 tablespoons I can't believe it's not butter
1/3 cup seasoned bread crumbs

Recipe Directions for Broiled Summer Squash & Tomatoes

  1. Scrub zucchini & yellow squash under cold running water; rinse & dry with paper towels. Trim ends and discard. Halve each squash lengthwise; set aside.

  2. Wash tomatoes & dry with paper towels. Cut 1/2 inch thick slice from top of each tomato and, using a sharp paring knife, cut around top in zigzag pattern; set tomatoes aside.

  3. Peel & mince garlic. Set aside.

  4. Melt butter in a small saucepan over low heat; set aside.

  5. Preheat broiler.

  6. Brush cut sides of squash halves with some of the butter. Place cut-side down on a broler rack set 3 inches from heating element & broil 5 minutes. Turn squash & broil another 3 minutes.

  7. Meanwhile, stir garlic, bread crumbs, and salt & pepper into remaining butter.

  8. Add tomatoes to broiler rack with squash, sprinkle all veggies with crumb mix, & broil another 2 minutes, or just until crumbs are golden brown.

  9. Carefully transfer veggies to platter. Cover loosely with foil and keep warm on stove top until ready to serve.
