If the tomato plants are really happy, once they start popping, you can have more tomatoes than you can keep up with. It's what I call Pandora's tomato box. You wanted those fresh garden tomatoes for months, now you have so many you don't know what to do with them all.
This simple recipe is an easy way to use some of those tomatoes as a side dish with a few kitchen staples and a little leftover meat.
4 medium tomatoes
2 slices of bread
1/8 cup onion, diced fine
1/8 cup green bell pepper, diced fine
1/2 cup ground meat (beef or sausage) cooked
1 tsp. basil
1/2 tsp. oregano
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
Preheat oven to 375.
Wash tomatoes and core. Place in a small sprayed baking dish.
In small bowl, tear up bread in bits. Add onion, bell pepper, spices and cooked meat.
Mix well and spoon mixture into center of tomatoes.
Bake uncovered for 20-25 minutes. Sprinkle with Parmesan and serve.
