This is a recipe of my own invention. These little bites make a nice summer appetizer when tomatoes are at their peak. Yield is an estimate as it all depends on the size of your tomatoes. :)
- In a small bowl, combine the cheeses, garlic, seasoning, chives, and milk.
- Slice 1/4 inch off the bottom of each tomato, reserving the bottoms. (The stem side should be flat enough for them to stand upright. If not, slice a tiny bit off so they will stand up before moving on to the next step.).
- Remove as much of the seeds and pulp from the tomatoes as you can.
- Fill each tomato with about 1 tsp cheese filling per tomato. Top with reserved bottoms.
- Place on a tray, stem side down and serve at once, or refrigerate, covered, up to 2 hours (let stand at room temperature 30 minutes before serving).
These were such a nice little treat. I enjoyed the combination of cheeses and seasonings with the tomatoes. My finished tomatoes (they were a little too ripe) were in no way as attractive as those in Andi's photo, but they tasted great.
Well you have a winner with this one! We loved it! I am so glad I have a bunch of tomatoes in the greenhouse, these make a delightful appy or just a great snack to pop into your mouth. So easy to put together too. I had a bunch La Roma's growing, so wanted to use them, I did substitute garlic herb soft cheese for chevre cheese, and used regular feta. I also just added a bit of fresh basil, just because I had that too. Thank you so much, flower~this was a real find.
