Combo Recipe for Stuffed Tomatoes
In search of more ways to eat tomatoes, lest we get bored with the excesses of summer, I found a couple recipes for stuffed tomatoes. I've never tried stuffing tomatoes before. The deterrent was the daintiness. It didn't seem like stuffed tomatoes would be filling and I was afraid to cover up the amazing flavor of garden fresh tomato with something as mundane as bread crumbs.
I took all my cookbooks off the shelf and put them on the bed and then sat in the middle and one by one checked for stuffed tomato recipes. In the end, there weren't that many cookbooks with stuffed tomato recipes. I did find two that I was excited about. One in the Blueberry Hill Cookbook and one in Nourishing Traditions. The first was simply egg with cheese and chives on top and the second was a bread crumb stuffing. They turned out very good individually but together they were amazing. The egg kind of poached in the tomato cup and the bread crumbs soaked up a little moisture making a stuffing. Together they balanced the carbohydrate and protein with the acid tomato making a completely delicious meal.
