Swiss Baked Tomatoes in Cream

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Zurie

A simple side dish, which can also be eaten for lunch on a cold day. Don't be put off by the cream -- do use it -- the Swiss do! Otherwise, serve this as a side with simple pan-fried fish fillets and a green salad.

Oh, yum. We did have leftovers, but just ran them through the blender for a quick pasta sauce the next day.
