I love cooking and trying new recipes so here’s one I have tried recently.

Hot Tomatoes with Cheese

Here’s a simple recipe using tomatoes and basil from the garden. It’s a perfect recipe for a starter dish when one is having a dinner party, or for a simple afternoon snack. What a wonderful way in which to use your tomatoes and basil.


  1. 6 tomatoes from the garden
  2. Thin slices of a strong cheese or goats cheese
  3. Olive oil
  4. Basil leaves from the garden
  5. Ground black pepper


  1. Take the tomatoes and slice in half.
  2. Grill for a couple of minutes then remove and place a slice of cheese on each half.
  3. Top with ground pepper and put back under the grill for another couple of minutes.
  4. Remove and sprinkle with olive oil then place basil leaves on top before serving piping hot.
