Recipe by tomsawyer
READY IN: 1hr 15mins




  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Slice off top of tomatoes.
  • Using a spoon, hollow out the tomatoes keeping around an inch of tomato "meat (or whatever its called)" around the bottom and sides.
  • Discard pulp.
  • Turn tomatoes upside down on paper towel to drain.
  • In a saucepan, heat oil, parsley, scallions, garlic, and breadcrumbs.
  • Mix together until just heated through and moist.
  • Place tomatoes in well oiled casserole dish.
  • Fill with stuffing.
  • Top each with a tablespoon of cheese.
  • Brush tomatoes with oil.
  • Bake for 45 minutes or until cheese is golden brown and tomatoes look done, baste with oil occasionally or when needed.
  • Note: as many people have noted these can be very dry depending on what type of breadcrumbs you use or how long you cook them. I would recommend adjusting the amounts according to what you have read or personal preferences.
