Oven temp too high for browning bread crumbs!
This is a tasty recipe for tomatoes, but 450 degrees is too hot for browning the bread crumbs, especially if you're using good whole grain bread crumbs, which burn in less than 3 minutes at 450 degrees. Brown at 300 or 350 and then turn up the temp to 450. If your tomatoes are juicy, drain on paper towels before layering in baking dish. We'll try the recipe again with temp adjustments and with whatever herb we have at hand, basil, cilantro, arugula, or mint.
