Welcome back to the blog!

Today there’s a recipe for stuffed tomatoes.  Growing up, we used to have stuffed peppers all the time.  I loved the filling, but not the pepper.  Now, my body can’t even seem to process peppers.  So, I decided to try to use a tomato instead and it worked!

Cut the top part out of the tomato like you would cut the top off a pumpkin.  Then scoop out the insides.  Be sure to use a pretty large tomato.   The recipe calls for 6 large peppers.  I used 8 medium tomatoes.

The Filling

1.5 lbs ground beef
1 small onion, chopped
1/4 cup Minute rice
1 (15 oz) can of tomato sauce
salt/pepper/Italian seasoning/garlic to taste

Brown the ground beef with the onion then add rice, seasoning, and tomato sauce to the mixture.  I like to leave some sauce out to the side so I can top my stuffed tomatoes with it before I put them in the oven.

Fill and top the tomatoes then bake at 350 – 375 for 20-30 minutes or until the skin starts peeling off of the tomatoes.

  1. Okay Kari this is totally brilliant. I have made little cherry tomatoes for appetizers but this would make a great meal. Yet doing this as soon as I get some nice big tomatoes.
