I decreased the amount of cinnamon, as I wanted just a hint of it in my meat mixture. There was just a hint of cinnamon flavor, which I liked a lot! My friend and her DH both enjoyed them along with me and gave them 5 stars, so 5 stars it is! The mint gave it a unique flavor and one that we thought was a nice addition to the mix. I will make these again, and next time might try Kitten's suggestion and try lamb or sausage! Thank you for sharing your recipe with us Bluemoon! Made for 123 Hit Wonders 3/09 Linda
these are delicious, they are quite similar to a Greek recipe for stuffed tomatoes that I have made in the past using ground lamb, I used a prepared package of wild rice to make things easier and used seasoned salt, wonderful flavor, thanks Bluemoon!
This had a very unique flavor. I have to admit, I increased the amount of ground beef, and also increased the amount of cinnamon. I halved the recipe, only making 4 stuffed tomatoes...but my tomatoes were huge, and I think I should have used the full amount of all the ingredients! I put cheese on top 2 of the tomatoes towards the end of cooking time to try and get a teenager to eat this....but I think the ones without cheese tasted better! I used couscous instead of rice, because I already had some leftover and needed to use it. I think it still tasted great! I am going to try this stuffed into bell peppers next time. I think that would be even better!
This was quite good! I really enjoyed the cinnamon and mint flavors. I had more stuffing than tomatoes, so I also stuffed a yellow bell pepper and baked that alongside. I'm not sure which I like better. I served a tomato and a portion of the pepper together and it all disappeared. I did have to make one small adjustment, I found I did not have any fresh mint so I had to sub dried, to add back a bit of the freshness I did mince a couple teaspoons of parsley to add in as well.
