How to Make Mozzarella Stuffed Tomatoes and grilled Sweet Italian Sausage

Step-by-Step

  1. Grill or pan cook sausage links till completely cooked as you prepare tomatoes.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
    Cut the tops off the tomatoes and, using a spoon, hollow out the middle. Salt and pepper inside of tomatoes
  3. . In a medium bowl, combine the mozzarella, bread crumbs, parsley, garlic, oregano, and olive oil. Place the stuffing in the tomatoes, taking care not to pack them too tight. (optional: sprinkle with parmesan cheese to top for a bit of a crispy texture)
  4. Place on a baking sheet (can wrap each tomato bottom in foil) and transfer to the oven. Roast for 30 minutes.
  5. Alternate cooking method:
    Wrap tomatoes in foil (leaving opened tomato top uncovered) and place on grill and cook till cheese is thoroughly melted and lightly brown on top.
  6. Serving size is 1 tomato per person. Filling enough for a main dish when paired with sausage. Great served with sweet italian sausage and a salad! Enjoy!!
