more yummy food

Once a week or so the husband and I cook dinner for just the two of us after the kids go to bed. This week I made something that I used to make a very long time ago, and now I just can't understand why I ever stopped making it. It's baked feta stuffed tomatoes. It's a very light but filling meal.

Easy Feta Stuffed Tomatoes Recipe

2 tbsps oil (can use olive or vegetable oil) .
1/4 c breadcrumbs .
grated parmesan cheese (to taste) .
4-5 oz feta cheese, crumbled .
salt & pepper .
1 tbsp sliced fresh garlic (can use about 1/4 tsp dry garlic powder, fresh is better!) .
4 large firm tomatoes, scoop & reserve pulp .
2 tbsps dried parsley .
3-4 tbsps onions, finely sliced (can use more)

Step #1 Cut the tops off of the tomatoes; carefully scoop out & reserve the pulp (try not to slice into the tomato skin when scooping out the pulp).

Step #2 Chop the pulp & then mix with the onion, pepper, bread crumbs, salt, dry parsley, oil, garlic & feta cheese (except the Parmesan cheese) in a bowl.

Step #3 Carefully stuff the tomatoes with the breadcrumb/pulp mixture (be careful not overstuff & tear the tomato skins).

Step #4 Sprinkle top with Parmesan cheese.

Step #5 Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 20 mins (can bake longer if desired).

Step #6 Serve hot.

*I didn't add the onions and may I suggest perhaps adding spinach. Very yummy!
