Gourmet Grilled Tomatoes

Ingredients:

2-4 large vine-ripe tomatoes, chilled. (Recommended: Beefsteak)
2 fresh garlic cloves (minced or pureed)
1 stick salted butter
½ lb sliced fresh mozzarella cheese (one ⅛” slice of cheese per slice of tomato)
1-2 tbs. Lawhorn's Signature Seasoning
6-8 fresh basil leaves, thinly sliced or chopped

Directions:

  1. Melt the butter and garlic together to make garlic butter. Gently poach the garlic in the butter over medium heat for about 10 minutes. Do not let the garlic burn.
  2. Core the tomatoes and slice them into about 1/2" slices. Brush the garlic butter on both sides. Liberally sprinkle both sides with Lawhorn's Signature Seasoning.
  3. Place on a hot grill (500° or hotter) and grill one minute. Flip the slices, sprinkle with fresh basil and top with the sliced cheese. Cook for another minute or until the cheese is melted nicely. (Note: Lower the lid of your grill. An aluminum pie tin or large pot lid will do if your grill does not have a lid.)
