Herbed-Yogurt Baked Tomatoes

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 30 mins

I copied this recipe out of Cooking Light many years ago! I have not made it in a long time, but with plenty of fresh vine ripe tomatoes coming off of my two plants, these are on the menu! Note: recipe states to use romano cheese, but I use any cheese I have on hand, in the photo I have used sharp cheddar.

I would rate it more than 5 stars - It looks great and tastes fabulous. I used Havarti lite mixed with a bit of Lite cheddar great flavor. My yogurt was a bit runny so the cheese flattened out but the flavor was still super good. These would be so attractive on a Brunch Buffet but will enhance any meal as a side dish.

This is a delicious and easy recipe. I added a dash of garlic powder to the yogurt mixture. I will definitely make this again.

These made for a very pleasant meal as I used lovely fresh beefsteak tomatoes from the farmer's market. The marjoram was a nice change from the usual basil.
