These make a wonderful side dish...I have even baked these in my outdoor covered gas grill (covered with foil), they are delicious served with grilled meat or chicken.... so awesome!

This was very, very good!!! I did everything as the recipe stated, but then after putting them in the oven - found that I did not put the mayonnaise in - I had it out and followed the recipe, but it had been left out of the instructions also. I imagine you add to the mixture prior to stuffing the tomotoes - but with leaving out the mayo, it was still simply fabulous! I am going to make some of these to take on a camping trip, what a treat!!! And they are healthy, I'd say - tomato, brocolli, breadcrumbs, cheese - well not too bad! Loved it and they are beautiful as a side or main course. I made them along with bacon wrapped asparagus and the whole meal was beautiful and extremely tasty. My guest thought would even be better with a little bacon in the brocolli mixture, maybe so, but it is fantastic just like it is! Thank you for a great recipe!

I forgot to rate this recipe the last time I made this with summer tomatoes. I had it again on turkey day, was great.
