I love a good oven-roasted tomato, and stuffing them with creamy goat cheese and herbs takes them to the next level. Good as an appetizer or side dish!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 425°. Slice off the top 1/2 inch of each tomato and reserve the tops. Scoop out the tomato cores and seeds. Cut a very thin sliver off of the bottom of each tomato to help them stand up straight. Arrange the tomatoes in a 9-by-13-inch glass or ceramic baking dish.
  2. In a bowl, combine the goat cheese with the egg, garlic, basil, salt, pepper, and 2 tablespoons of the olive oil. Spoon the goat cheese mixture into the tomatoes, mounding the filling 1/2 inch above the rim. Cover with the tomato tops and drizzle with the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil.
  3. Bake the tomatoes for 35 minutes, until tender and browned in spots and the cheese is hot. Let stand for 15 minutes. Drizzle each with a bit of the balsamic. Serve warm or at room temperature.
