Buttermilk Baked Tomatoes

READY IN: 23mins
Recipe by Linda B

Tasty baked tomatoes that I often make in the summer when I am dieting. Only 1 WW point for a whole tomato! I found recipe years ago in The Calculating Cook, a gourment cookbook for diabetics and dieters.

I wonder what the buttermilk does for this recipe? Nevertheless it was very good. I felt like I was eating a mini pizza along with the rest of my dinner. I will definitely make these again and again!


  1. Cut tomatoes in half, seed, and place cut side up in broiler safe baking dish.
  2. Pour 1 tablespoon of buttermilk into each tomato half then sprinkle top of each with cheese, salt and pepper.
  3. Bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 minutes; then place under broiler until lightly browned.
  4. You may add oregano, basil, tarragon, garlic, or rosemary for a flavor change.
