Smoky Blue Cheese Crusted Tomatoes

This is a simple recipe that has a surprising amount of flavor.  Grilling the tomatoes gives them a smokiness that is really intense with the blue cheese.

6 medium tomatoes
1/2 cup dry breadcrumbs
1 tbsp olive oil
1 cup crumbled blue cheese
Salt and pepper

Prepare 1 side of grill to high heat and leave other side unlit.
Mix breadcrumbs and olive oil in a small bowl.  Remove the core from each tomato and spoon out a bit of the tomato to make a nice opening.  Sprinkle tomatoes with salt and pepper and drizzle with a bit of olive oil.  Fill each with 1-2 tablespoons blue cheese (as much as you can stuff in there!) and sprinkle with the breadcrumb mixture.

Arrange tomatoes topping side up on unlit side of grill.  Cook until the tomatoes are soft and cheese has melted, about 10-12 minutes.
