Delish! This is was a nice appetizer for a grilled steak dinner. In addition to the pepper I added a little kosher salt. I used light feta cheese and since it wasn't herbed I added some minced garlic basil and oregano. I also put in some parmesan cheese and a bit of seasoned bread crumbs over top. You have to watch these carefully on the grill. Thanks for a great recipe! Read More

These were simple to prepare and turned out nicely though they were quite simple. I'd like to try these again with a clove of garlic and chopped basil and shredded parmesan mixed into the fetta. Read More

I made these again last night as a side with our grilled steaks. My hubby is not as keen on feta as I am so I decided to mix the feta with a bit of three cheese mix from my deli,(Parmesan, Romano, Asiago). Hubby really loved the simple addition. Read More

mmm I really liked these. I had tomato basil feta on hand and decided to use that. I was inspired by the basil though so I added a bunch of fresh copped basil from the garden as well as the chopped insides of the tomatoes back in with the cheese and bail mixture. I cannot wait to make this with tomatoes out of my garden instead of out of the store. Read More

Why haven't I tried this sooner? I spray Pam on mine rather than rubbing them with olive oil. I typically only have regular feta on hand so I mixed in a little dried oregano and basil before stuffing the tomatoes. I loosely fill them so the cheese actually melts. I've done this in the oven or the grill (depending on the method of cooking that night) and they have both come out tasting yummy. Sad the tomato season is ending here. Will make as often as possible. Read More

Quick and easy and full of flavor. I added a tsp or two of greek basil dressing and some bread crumbs to absorb that. I also dabbed the tomato fruit (sans seeds) with a paper towel and mixed with rest of ingredients before stuffing the shell. 15 minutes on med heat did the trick. Thanks Wilemon! Read More

I like recipes that are very simple and this one turned out great! I used light feta & ran out of propane just in time for grilling but they were still very tasty. Read More
