    Dreamgoddess's Note:

    These are whole tomatoes, stuffed with an herb and crumb topping and baked in cream, which makes a lovely sauce. They are very rich, and I serve them with garlicky, robust meats, like lamb or garlicky chicken... Adapted from, "California The Beautiful Cookbook."

      These stuffed tomatoes were a really nice addition to our meal tonight. My DH fell in love with them--I guess so since he ate two of them by himself. I did not have fresh herbs so I used dried and they came out just fine. I also used some multi-grain bread for the fresh bread crumbs. Love the addition of the cream. Made for ZWT-8-France.

      This was a good recipe. A different way for me to use my tomatoes. My BF said, you're gonna be making this one for me again. He really enjoyed them. Thanks for a great recipe.

      Delicious, rich, easy to make stuffed tomatoes. I cut the recipe in half for the 2 of us, made the stuffing using whole wheat sour dough bread, basil and rosemary. The next time that I make them I am going to add a clove or 2 of garlic to the stuffing for added flavor. Thank you Julie, for another yummy recipe.
