cheesy tomato delights

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 20 minutes

Makes: 8 tomato 'halves'

  • 4 ripe but firm tomatoes

  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) shredded mozzarella cheese

  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) shredded cheddar cheese

  • 1 tbsp. (15 ml) Italian seasoning

  • ¼ cup chopped fresh basil

How To:
  1. Cut tomatoes in half, crosswise and remove seeds. Place halves on a baking sheet lined with foil or parchment paper. Trim bottom of tomato if necessary to stand tomato straight up.

  2. In a bowl, combine cheeses, Italian seasoning, basil, and a pinch of pepper (if desired). Distribute cheese mixture among tomato halves.

  3. Bake in preheated 350°F (180°C) oven for about 20 minutes or until tomatoes are softened and cheese is light golden.


Make it Fun!

Let kids help stuff the cheese into the tomatoes. Imagine that you’re filling a pirate’s treasure chests together!

Extras can be chopped up into bite-sized pieces and used in salads, wraps, tacos, etc.
