    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Steam the broccoli in a small amount of water for about 3 minutes. Drain well.
    2. 2
      Combine broccoli with cheddar, breadcrumbs, celery, mayo, and salt.
    3. 3
      Take the stem off the top of each tomato. Carefully cut 5 wedges in each tomato without cutting all the way through the bottom - the wedges should stay connected at the bottom.
    4. 4
      Spoon equal amounts of the broccoli filling into each tomato. Gently press the wedges back toward the center of the tomato. Sprinkle each with some of the parmesan cheese.
    5. 5
      Place tomatoes in a shallow pan and bake at 325 degrees for about 25 minutes.

      I wasn't really crazy about this recipe. I agree with what another reviewer wrote about the cooking time not being long enough. Perhaps it would help if the oven were hotter. I did like the broccoli filling just not the tomato. Made for Please Review my Recipe cooking tag game.

      If you have a fairly big tomato this is a meal in it's self! I love everything in this dish but would sprinkle the cut tomato with a bit of salt next time as the tomato it's self was a bit flat under the yummy stuffing. This likely wouldn't be the case if you have vine ripe homegrown. I found that mine took twice as long to bake and color a bit on top as stated so do allow for your tomato size. I really did enjoy this and not only is it tasty but pretty as well.

      This is a very nice recipe. I had 1 huge fresh garden tomato so I sliced off both ends, cut it in half and got two thick slices. I placed them in a small casserole dish and topped with the filling (made as written). This was a very nice side dish, but next time I may add some garlic or something to give it more flavor. Made for PRMR.
