My neighbor delivered a very large bag of his summer tomatoes, and I didn't want them to go to waste. I experimented with the stuffing mixture until my husband loved this combo. Easy, tasty, satisfying, and a good choice for hot summer nights!

  • Cut a thin slice off the top of each tomato, and gently scoop out pulp and seeds, leaving a 1/2 inch wall. Finely dice 1/2 cup of the pulp and set aside. Season the inside of each hollowed tomato with pinches of salt and pepper.

  • Mix reserved diced tomato pulp, goat cheese, mascarpone cheese, tuna, red onion, cucumber, mushrooms, red pepper, celery, garlic, and sesame seeds in a large bowl.

  • Scoop mixture into tomato shells up to the top of each tomato. Place on a foil-lined baking sheet.

  • Sprinkle each tomato with sunflower seeds, Parmesan cheese, garlic salt, onion powder, salt, and pepper. If desired, sprinkle each tomato with parsley flakes and Worcestershire sauce.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes, then broil right before serving until tops are lightly browned, about 1 to 2 minutes.

I am super stingy with 5 star ratings so you know I think this is awesome. The worcestershire sauce takes it over the top so I wouldn't call it an "optional" ingredient. Read More

These are so good! I had a lot of the filling left over so I made them for lunch the next day by heating up the filling in the microwave to melt the cheeses and then just broiling it in the tomatoes for a minute. They were even better! Wonderful recipe for goat cheese and tomato lovers! Read More

Completely awesome! Was simple and easy to make. I used Parmesan cheese bc that's all I had. I made Tina salad for my husband so I reserved some for this dish. He doesn't really like tomatoes but he wanted some of my dish instead of the regular tuna salad! The tuna & tomato together was delightful!!! Read More
