My vegetarian friend enjoys this as an alternative to mushroom burgers when we grill out. They can be made on the grill or in the oven.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees or heat grill to medium.
  2. Cut tomatoes in half, scoop out insides, reserving pulp and leaving a 1/4 inch shell.
  3. Rinse and chop pulp, setting aside.
  4. Lightly sprinkle shells with salt and lay upside down on paper towels to drain.
  5. Mix cheese, zucchini, croutons, basil, and pepper into pulp.
  6. Spoon into tomato shells.
  7. Bake for about 15 minutes in oven (until cheese is melted) or wrap in foil and grill about 10 minutes.
