Cheesy Stuffed Tomatoes

Have you ever seen a recipe and had to make it immediately? I saw this recipe and instantly became obsessed with making these as soon as humanly possible. I even went to the farm market and spent $9 on 4 NJ Farm grown tomatoes because if I am making these dreamy bit of heaven I want them to be as dreamy as possible.

Cheesy Stuffed Tomatoes

You will need:
4 medium tomatoes
1/4 cup of your favorite breadcrumbs
2 tbl butter, melted
8 basil leaves, chopped
1/2 cup monterey jack cheese, shredded
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Parsley for garnish

Slice off top of tomato, hollow out (leaving 1/2 inch thick shell), and chop pulp and set aside.

In a medium bowl, combine bread crumbs, butter, basil, salt and pepper. Next stir in cheese

and tomato pulp. Fill each tomato shell and then wrap each tomato individually in foil.

Grill, or bake (at 400 degrees) for 10 to 15 minutes, until cheese is completely melted.

Garnish with parsley and serve hot!

VERDICT-YUMMY! Perfect side dish for any BBQ this summer. My tomatoes were huge so they could have used a touch more stuffing and I would like to put some cheesy on top and let that melt next time too. I just think they are really easy but look super fancy and impressive on any plate
