chopped green bell pepper
grated Parmesan cheese
salt and pepper to taste
I've made these several times for Jason and myself as a light lunch or dinner. I've made them by Anita's original recipe, and I've also made the following changes: I've added shredded swiss cheese and chopped onions and red and yellow peppers as well as green. I've added a chopped, seeded jalapeno pepper to the mix. I've substituted cubed cooked ham and also cubes of kielbasa instead of bacon. And I've replaced the Parmesan with Ricotta for a richer filling. I'm convinced that there is no way to mess this recipe up-it turns out perfect every time. Thanks Anita-your recipe is great as is, but serves VERY well as a foundation for changes!
Absolutely delicious! I did add my own seasonings (garlic, onion, pepper and italian) and once the tomato was stuffed, I topped with some bread crumbs, parm cheese and a little olive oil. Thanks Anita!
I made lots of changes. We're vegetarian, so no bacon. Used feta instead of parmesan. Diced and sauteed: 1/4 onion, 1/3 red pepper, 1 yellow squash. Added to all of the tomato pulp (diced and lightly drained). Used fresh basil instead of what the recipe called for. Oh, and breadcrumbs instead of croutons. Really good!
I did make changes to this, before adding the filling I smeared the inside of the tomatoes with sun dried tomato paste. I used a yellow bell pepper and chopped the parsley into the mix if I'd used it as a garnish hubby would have just put it on the side of his plate. I also made the croutons. Served with a rice salad this made a nice light evening meal. Thanks
This recipe was a great sidedish to my dinner tonight! I cut the tomatoes in half and tried to stuff them that way, but that wasn't a good idea. Not a lot would fit into them, and they kept tipping. Make sure to cut off just the top of the tomato; it will taste much better! The croutons were also a nice touch.
One of the most succesful recipes I have tried off of allrecipes; my brother and I really enjoyed this
After reading the comments from a few reviewers, I upped the ingredients to avoid running out of stuffing, of course I ended up with too much, but the mixture is so flavorful (the bacon really sets it off) that it can be combined with lettuced for a great salad or mixed in with other vegetables
I used both shredded and canned parmesan cheese; I also mixed together bread crumbs and canned parmesan and sprinkled the mixture on the tops before baking.
Others mentioned that the green pepper didnt work for them; it worked fine for me so I think its a matter of taste. This is definitely a keeper for me
This were better than I expected - I was trying to use up some leftover garden tomatoes. I used six small to medium tomatoes and only had enough stuffing for five - so I would be more generous when making the filling. I used Romano cheese and some fresh snipped basil too.
