If you love tomatoes like me, you're going to love these Roasted Stuffed Roma Tomatoes! Made with fresh Roma tomatoes and a simple herb-infused breadcrumb and cheese filling, these roasty and delicious tomatoes are soft j the outside, crunchy on the inside, and oh so delicious!
Every year around this time, my garden is overrun with tons of Roma tomatoes, so this dish is a great way to use them up!
What you'll need for the stuffed Roma tomato recipe
To make these simple and delicious stuffed tomatoes, you will need:
- 10-12 small to medium Roma tomatoes.
- Panko breadcrumbs.
- Scallions (AKA green onions).
- Fresh thyme.
- Grated parmesan cheese.
- Olive oil,
- Garlic powder.
- Crushed red pepper flakes.
Preparing the Roma tomatoes for stuffing
To get the tomatoes read to stuff, you'll slice the tomatoes in half lengthwise, and remove the seeds and pulp from the center of each with a spoon. Rinse if needed to remove any stubborn seeds.
Baking the stuffed tomatoes
To bake, prepare the filling in a medium mixing bowl, then divide evenly into each tomato. When all tomatoes are filled, drizzle the stuffed tomatoes generously with olive oil. Bake in a preheated oven for 30 minutes, until the stuffing is nice and golden brown, and the tomatoes are soft and roasted.
Serving the roasted stuffed tomatoes
Serve the finished tomatoes warm, as an appetizer, ot as a side dish to any Italian meal! I love to serve these tomatoes with a nice garden salad and some pasta or grilled steak.
