Savory Stuffed Tomatoes

stuffed tomatoes

Stuffed tomatoes are a delicious beef steak tomato with the tops cut off and the flesh removed. They are then stuffed with a combination of Italian sausage, or the sausage of your choice, onion, minced garlic, pepper, rice, and mozzarella cheese. Extra ingredients can be added to the stuffing if you wish. For example, bell peppers and mushrooms would not go amiss. Lastly the tomatoes are topped with a butter, bread crumb, and mozzarella mixture. Pop these back into the oven for a few minutes to brown and heat, garnish with some fresh parsley, and you are ready for a delicious treat.

One thing that I do have to mention is that tomatoes are an excellent dietary source as they are incredibly good for you.

As I mentioned, I use beef steak tomatoes, but you can use the tomato of your choice. Just make sure they are large and rather firm. If you decide to use a smaller tomato, they might be best served as a snack or appetizer rather than a main course. They are also best when in season. The flesh you remove can be discarded or used to make sauce. I will do a recipe for this in the future. 

Believe me, as always, your family and friends will love them. Let us know what you think.
