Review This Recipe
I found this recipe in a magazine back in the 90's,it called for cutting the tomato bottoms off in the shape of stars which you bake beside the stuffed ones,since it's red and green it's perfect for Christmas! My son is having everyone over for dinner this year and sure enough Christmas Stars is my dish assignmet! I'm going to try all the tips. Thank-You Stouffer's fans!
Simple and tasty
Here is a great tip. I used a muffin tin to cook stuffed tomatoes it holds them in place and you don't have to worry about them falling over. Like all the other reviews it was an excellent dish and will make again.
I have used this recipe to dress up a plain and simple dinner, as well as to embellish a fancy one. They are delicious, especially when tomatoes in the market are less than tasty. I agree, you need to lightly salt the inside of the tomatoes, then turn them upside down to drain out some of the liquid. Not only delicious but pretty as well.
These are SO good. Just make sure you sprinkle some salt on the tomatoes to dry them out before stuffing them, or else it gets a little runny. I make a ton of these and snack on them throughout the week.
All my favorite tastes in one dish, will make this again and again.
Try This..IT's even better!
Cook the spinach and the cheese together in a small bowl or casserole dish before filling the tomatoes. The after stuffing sprinkle a little cheese on top. It is a lot tastier and the tomatoes don't fall apart when trying to pick them up and eat them.
I have made these over a dozen times since first trying them. They are wonderful. Definately add parmesan to the mixture before filling the tomatoes. Bon Appetit.
I will make this again!
I liked this recipe. VERY EASY. The only trouble I had was the tomatoes getting mushy and falling over when they were cooking. I will make this again.!! Very good.
I am so tired of the same old vegetables! This is quick, easy and my family really enjoyed it.
I made these last night. My husband thought they were very good. I did add a little more cheese into the mixture, also I added some bacon bits. This gave it a bit of texture and more flavor. I'll be making these again.
Great Side Dish
I made these for a side dish at Thanksgiving. They were great. Everybody loved them. I had so many compliments on the stuffed tomatoes. All of my family was happy to see something different as a side dish. I will be making these again, since they are so easy to make.
These would work well with anything. I served these with a brown rice pilaf and some grilled halibut. It really did add some nice colour to the plate. It was a nice change to a dinner salad. I took the advice of the last review and mixed some extra parmesan cheese through the spinach before I spooned the mixture into the tomatoes. I actually think you could doctor these up even more if you wanted before filling the tomatoes. The only thing you have to be careful of is leaving them in too long as they will start to fall as the tomatoe softens up. I had one colapse because it was in a little too long. It didn't ruin the taste though...they were wonderful. I will definately be making these again!!
This side dish was soooooooooo good, I had to go back for more. I only used 4 tomatoes to one pkg. of spinach souffle, and topped it with fresh parm cheese. Next time though, I will mix some extra parmesan into the spinach, and on top. This one is a keeper.
I made this for a dinner party of 12 adults and 8 kids. Huge hit. The women took the recipe home with them!!!
