Better than you would think. Has become part of my repertoire. I happened to have stewed tomatoes on hand when I made this and used instead. I make this in a 9 inch pie dish.

I so happened to have stewed tomatoes and used that as the topping. This recipe is amazingly good for how simple it is.

Love this tart, make it every year with my garden tomatoes. I use torn crusty bread instead of the bread crumbs as the base.

I like the muffin tin idea and wonder if it would work well with little grape tomatoes.

This is fabulous as an appetizer - mold the bread crumbs into muffin tins and use roma tomatoes instead. I also toss the torn bread with olive oil, put in the refrigerator over night!!
