Vegetarian Stuffed Tomatoes

Vegetarian Stuffed Tomatoes

For all of us that that garden, tomatoes are a staple. At the height of the season tomatoes will pile up. It is at this time you need to come up with new ideas. These vegetarian stuffed tomatoes can be easily cooked and be the main course in a “meatless” night.


6 medium tomatoes


1 cup garlic/cheese croutons, crushed
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons grated American, provolone or cheddar cheese
4 tablespoons melted butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
Chopped fresh parsley for garnish


Cut a thin slice off the top of each tomato and put to the side. You can use as a topping when you serve – or not. Scoop out pulp, leaving a 1/2″ shell. Invert onto paper towels to drain for about 1/2 hour.

Preheat your oven to 350° F. Mix stuffing ingredients together in a bowl. Flip tomatoes over and pat dry. Spoon the stuffing into the tomatoes; sprinkle with parsley.

Place tomatoes in a baking dish; cover tomatoes with aluminum foil to prevent over-browning of stuffing. Bake for 30 minutes or cook on grill until done. You can take the tops and place onto the tomatoes before you serve as a little extra.
