Potato-Stuffed Tomatoes

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 30 min.


2 servings

Even veggie-fearing kids will eat these up. Be sure not to bake the tomatoes much longer than 10 minutes or they might soften and fall apart.—Country Woman Test Kitchen, Greendale, WI


  • 2 small tomatoes
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup mashed potatoes (with added milk and butter)
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 1 tablespoon chopped green onion


  1. Cut a thin slice off the top of each tomato. Scoop out pulp, leaving a 1/4-in. shell. Sprinkle salt on the insides of the tomatoes; invert onto paper towels and let drain for 10 minutes.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the potatoes, parsley, 1 tablespoon cheese and onion. Spoon into tomatoes. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
  3. Place in a small baking dish coated with cooking spray. Bake at 400° for 10 minutes or until heated through.
