Grilled green tomatoes

My bf planted 8 tomato plants along a fence row in my back yard, and they are prolific. I adore tomatoes, especially fried green ones. I've been dieting (9 lbs. so far-prolly all sweat from the heat of the last few days), and was looking for a way to cook green tomatoes without the fat of frying. I came up with this recipe. Alex even likes it and he's not a green mater fan.

One medium green tomato per person, sliced 1/4" thick

One onion sliced and seperated into rings

Grated parmesan cheese

Garlic powder

Salt and pepper to taste (I used Tony Chacheres cajun seasoning blend and LOVED it)

Generously spray a cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray. Place sliced tomatoes in a single layer on the cookie sheet. Sprinkle cheese on top, enough to almost cover tomato slices, followed with the seasonings. Place onion slices on top of tomato. Spray everything on top again with the cooking spray. Place under a broiler (I used the 2nd rack level from the top) until cheese begins to bubble. Serve hot.

I LOVE fried-green tomatoes! I, too, feel an urgent desire to lose copious amounts of weight, so I will definitely try this recipe!!!!

Sounds like a pizza without the crust! I do NOT like tomatoes, in almost any form except as pizza or spaghetti sauce, so I won't be trying this recipe--not to say it doesn't sound good, just too tomatoey for me.

My mom like tomatoes and marshmallows. I may post her recipe one of these days.
