Grilled Tomatoes

With the weather getting colder and an abundance of tomatoes coming in from the garden to beat the first frost, you may have a lot of tomatoes to use.  At our house, my wife picked 70 tomatoes from a single plant.  What to do with them all?  Consider grilling them.

What you will need:
   Giardiniera in oil
   Bleu Cheese crumbles

Take out the stem of the tomato with a paring knife.  Be generous with your removal as you will be filling the opening.  Gently and without crushing the tomato squeeze some of the water.  With your finger or a small spoon, remove most of the seeds.  Pour some of the giardiniera oil into the tomato and fill the openings where the seeds were with the giardiniera.  Top it with some basil and Bleu Cheese crumbles and place them on a medium hot grill until the cheese begins to melt.  Serve and enjoy!
