Panko Stuffed Broiled Tomatoes

There is a reason why I choose to bake my tomatoes for a few minutes, before broiling them. I like for the tomatoes to soften just a bit, before broiling the seasoned topping under the broiler. A garlic-infused olive oil is added to Panko crumbs. Why Panko crumbs? They give a beautiful "crunch" to the topping. Sure, you can use regular breadcrumbs, but Panko is my #1 choice. This grocery item is more widely available in most grocery stores (maybe in the Japanese/International section), at at Trader Joe's.

Ingredients

2 Roma tomatoes, sliced in half
½ cup panko crumbs
2 Tbsp. Olive Oil
1 small pat unsalted butter
1 garlic clove, finely minced
coarse salt & freshly ground pepper
2-3 tsp. fresh thyme, finely minced (about 1-2 small sprigs)
1 Tbsp. Parmesan cheese (optional)
4 small "dots" unsalted butter (optional)
