Tomatoes are delicious cooked this way. We have made them many times with quite a few variations. Sometimes just like the recipe, sometimes with a little olive oil and seasoning salt sprinkled on them. We've cooked them in the oven and also on the grill when we're grilling. They always turn out great.

These cheese-stuffed tomatoes make a different side dish for steak. I wanted something other than potatoes to go with my bbq steaks. These tomatoes were amazing I was able to use fresh basil like CelestialShannon and some left over homemade bread for the breadcrumbs. I topped with green onions instead of parsley because I didn't have parsley. I would recommend trying this recipe. Thank you for this wonderful recipe.
