Tomatoes with a crumb topping

Anti pasti or the damn tasty little things. Who doesn’t know them, they’re on every buffet, laugh at you and hey presto they’re gone, gone in your mouth. Or they’re just sitting around somewhere as a snack and before you know it, they’re gone. Long story short, they are worth sinning for.

I would like to introduce you to some of my favorites in loose succession, and today “Tomatoes with Breadcrumbs” are the first.

But before we get to the recipe, allow me a few sentences on the topic: crumbs or breadcrumbs.

Breadcrumbs or breadcrumbs are used to coat meat, fish and other fried foods, to bind fillings and the like. Breadcrumbs or breadcrumbs are made from dry white bread or dry rolls by grating and grinding.

Many probably remember it from their parents, when breadcrumbs were needed, the mother took old rolls or old bread from the cupboard and processed it into breadcrumbs or crumbs on a household grater.

And today? You can buy ready-made breadcrumbs in any store. Of course very comfortable.

Bread leftovers go in the trash. For industrially produced breadcrumbs, bread is freshly baked, dried and then ground. I don’t want to discuss how much energy is needed for this production here, everyone can make up their own minds, especially considering that hundreds of tons of bread end up in the garbage can.

But now to the recipe.
