Raclette-Topped Broiled Tomatoes

These quick-cooking broiled tomatoes make a hearty main dish when served with a salad and bread. Raclette is a mild melting cheese from the French and Swiss Alps that’s rich, creamy, gooey, and grillable. Make things easy on yourself: Shred the cheese when it’s cold and firm. And be sure to choose small tomatoes that are uniform in size.
