I made these for lunch today, with some guac. that I had whipped up and added the basil and oregano. I put them on the smallest tomatoes that I had and OH, MY, GOSH. Excellent and simple. I didn't really know how long to bake them, but, it's not a big deal, they came out great. Thank you. A new family staple! :D

Cheers!
