Tomatoes with Cheese Stuffing - The addition of cheese to the stuffing used in stuffed tomatoes means added flavor, as well as nutritive value in the form of protein, the food substance in which the tomatoes themselves are lacking. The bread crumbs used for the stuffing supply a large amount of carbohydrate, so that the completed dish, besides being a very attractive one, contains all the food principles in fairly large quantities. Stuffed tomatoes may be served as the main dish in a light meal or as a vegetable dish in a heavy meal.



  1. Select medium-sized tomatoes and hollow out the centers, reserve pulp.
  2. Mix the crumbs, cheese, salt, pepper, butter, and hot water with the pulp from the centers of the tomatoes.
  3. Fill the tomatoes with this stuffing, place in a pan, and bake in a moderate oven until the tomato can be pierced easily with a fork.
  4. Serve hot.
