Well I finally got it together to post my stuffed tomatoes!
As soon as I started to make these I remembered why I like them. You can do anything with tomatoes. These were stuffed with Parmesan herb bread, garlic, and topped with thyme flowers and sage.
The original recipe is culled from "Simple Organic Cooking" Compiled by Constance B. Bates 1972. This was one of the first cookbooks that I owned.

Original recipe change as you like : ) Of course it is much better if it is tomatoes season!

4 large tomatoes
2 TB. melted butter
1 1/4 cup of soft bread crumbs
1 egg, well beaten
2 cloves minced garlic
Rosemary to taste
1/2 tea. salt
few grains of pepper

Rinse tomatoes cut off the top of each tomato. Spoon out pulp and seeds. Sprinkle the inside with salt. Place tomato shells in a shallow baking dish.
Drizzle melted butter over bread crumbs and toss to lightly coat. Lightly mix in egg and remaining ingredients. Spoon mixture into tomato shells. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Serve hot.


  1. Suz,I have to tell you this is a wonderful recipe! I have had trouble getting my husband Herb to eat. He looked over my shoulder and saw your beautiful stuffed tomatoes as I was reading your blog. "I want that!!" he proclaimed. Well needless to say I got busy and with your great instructions, made him the tomatoes. Now all I hear is "make those tomatatoes!!" He actally seems happier and in a much better mood since I have been making them for him. Thankyou for your wonderful recipe, good instructions, and making my Herb happy!!!! Viola

  2. Viola,
    I am so glad to hear that your husband liked the tomatoes. I must say most men... Oh never mind dear. I will start cooking some more meals to share with you and your sweet Herb.
