4 large
vine ripened tomatoes
1 c
mozzarella cheese shredded
1/2 c
seasoned bread crumbs
2 clove
minced garlic
1/8 tsp
1/8 tsp
1/4 c
virgin olive oil
fine sea salt and black pepper
1 pkg
sweet italian sausage links


1Grill or pan cook sausage links till completely cooked as you prepare tomatoes.
2Preheat 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)
4Place on a baking sheet (can wrap each tomato bottom in foil) and transfer to the oven. Roast for 30 minutes.
5Alternate 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.
6Serving 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!!
