Baked Tomatoes With Cornbread Crumbs- Gluten Free

Here is another delicious Gluten Free side dish.  The first step is to make the G.F. cornbread. You will use the cornbread to make the Baked Tomato Dish.



1 cup all purpose gluten free flour ( or another G.F. flour that you like)

3/4 cup stone-ground organic cornmeal

3 Tablespoons of sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon butter
3 medium eggs 
1 cup milk
1/4 cup melted butter


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Mix the dry ingredients (flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, and salt) together in a bowl and set aside.
Melt the one tablespoon of butter in a 10 inch cast-iron skillet or a round baking pan in the oven. Coating the bottom and sides of the pan with the butter.
In another bowl, combine the eggs, milk, and 1/4 cup butter. Add this mixture to the flour mixture and stir until just moistened. Pour batter into the hot skillet or baking pan. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until a knife comes out clean.

Place half of the grape tomato halves into the pie plate, split side up, tightly.
