  1. Preheat your oven's broiler. Cover a broiler pan or baking sheet with aluminum foil, and coat with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Arrange tomato slices in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Drizzle each slice lightly with olive oil, spreading oil evenly with finger if necessary. Season with salt, pepper, garlic, monosodium glutamate (if using), and oregano. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over the top.
  3. Broil, 3 inches from the heat until cheese is browned and bubbly, 3 minutes.

I was in a hurry, so I deleted the MSG, substituted dried oregano for fresh, and used garlic salt. This was still the most delicious part of the meal. Very quick and easy.

Really enjoyed this recipe. Fun (easy) to make, and delicious to eat. Like other reviewers, I skipped the MSG (why use this to begin with?!?). And, like another reviewer, I used dried Parmesa...

This is one of my top ten recipes. I've been making these for years and love them as a snack, side dish or appetizer. Do not put in the MSG, but add a dash of lemon pepper or lemon juice for e...

I made this as a side dish to a grilled chicken dinner for dinner with friends. It was so awesome that eveybody's response was almost too much for the dinner table. I used fresh basil and used...

This was good, but I overcooked it so the tomatoes were too mushy and think it would be better with a semisoft cheese on top. It definitely doesn't work with a "melty" cheese on top. Too hard ...

I didnt use msg and they turned out great! I have to say I didnt actually measure any ingredients, rather, just put on how much I thought I would like. Very nice, quick side dish or snack.

Excellent broiled tomatoes. No MSG, but followed exactly. They were quick to put together and popped them under the broiler right before dinner. I can see the possibilities with different herbs....
