Reviews for Tuna-Stuffed Tomatoes
" This sounded really good but not sure about only cooking that GLOP with the raw egg in it for 2 or 3 minutes. Then putting it under the broiler to just brown the cheese topping wouldn't further cook it. Might rethink it and sub something else for the raw egg. Anyone else have a thought on the matter ???
"I added minced shallots instead of the onion and diced celery, drizzled a little E.V.O.O. over the top and baked for 20 min. before broiling - FANTASTIC!! Also used provolone cheese with the mozzarella, and yummo!!"
