  • Bake, uncovered, for 30-40 minutes or until bubbly and slightly browned.
  • Serve with toasted bread or crackers.

Notes

NOTE: The tomatoes will be little bombs of hot liquid! Be careful :) If they haven't split in the oven, it helps to pierce each one to let some steam out once removed from the oven. Wait about 10 minutes before serving.
