Broccoli Tomato Cups Recipe

Broccoli Tomato Cups Recipe

I had an abundance of tomatoes and broccoli one year, so I began experimenting to see how best I could use both of them. Now this recipe is a family favorite.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 30 min. YIELD:6-8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups soft bread crumbs, divided
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 6 to 8 medium tomatoes
  • 2 cups chopped broccoli
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  • 1. Combine 1/2 cup of bread crumbs and 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese; set aside. Cut a thin slice off the top of each tomato; scoop out pulp and place in a strainer to drain. Place tomatoes upside down on paper towels.
  • 2. Cook the broccoli until crisp-tender; drain. Chop tomato pulp and place in a large bowl. Add broccoli, cheddar cheese, mayonnaise, salt, pepper and remaining crumbs and Parmesan; mix gently.
  • 3. Stuff tomatoes; place in a greased 11-in. x 7-in. baking dish. Sprinkle with reserved crumb mixture. Bake, uncovered, at 375° for 30-40 minutes. Yield: 6-8 servings.
