I make this baked stuffed tomatoes dish often because my family really likes it. Besides being flavorful, the tomatoes make a colorful, zesty addition to any dinner. —Edna Jackson, Kokomo, Indiana


  • 6 medium tomatoes
  • 1 cup cheese and garlic croutons, crushed
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons grated American or cheddar cheese
  • 4 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • Chopped fresh parsley for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Cut a thin slice off the top of each tomato. Scoop out pulp, leaving a 1/2-in. shell. Invert shells onto paper towels to drain. Mix stuffing ingredients except parsley; spoon stuffing into tomatoes. Sprinkle with parsley.
  2. Place tomatoes in a baking dish; cover with foil to prevent overbrowning of stuffing. Bake until tomatoes are tender and stuffing is hot, about 30 minutes.
