Stuffed Tomatoes

This yummy recipe works best with plum tomatoes, because they have sturdy sides. I think regular tomatoes would also work, but seeding them would be more difficult. A little crumbled bacon would be a great addition. There's always tomorrow…

Stuffed Tomatoes
5 plum tomatoes, cut in half and seeded (A spoon works well for this.)
1 cup fresh breadcrumbs
1 handful freshly grated Parmesan cheese
2 Tbsp. chopped fresh basil
Olive oil
1/2 cup fancy shredded Italian cheese blend

1. Sprinkle tomato halves with salt and pepper. Combine breadcrumbs and next 2 ingredients in a bowl. Mound breadcrumb mixture in tomato halves. Drizzle stuffing mixture with olive oil. Sprinkle with shredded cheese.
2. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes.
