This is a wonderful easy stuffed tomato recipe. I am surprised there isn't that many reviews. I used 4 medium tomatoes instead of 2 large. I had to use Italian sausage because that's all I had I crumbled and browned before using in the stuffing. I was skeptical about using the cheddar with that but I was so wrong. The flavor combo is great. I did grease the bottom of my dish with a bit of olive oil before placing the tomatoes. I will definitely make these again. A light sprinkle of basil on top the cheese also adds good flavor. My boyfriend who isn't fond of tomatoes had two. Thanks for sharing the recipe:) Read More

Very nice mix of flavors but the sausage was overbearing. I would half the sausage next time or use a very mild sausage. Read More

The picture looked so delicious I couldn't wait to make the recipe even though I didn't have all the ingredients. Instead of canned tomatos I stuffed my red tomatos with diced yellow tomatos. I used skinless turkey sausage. I used less breadcrumbs but added a few flavored (cheddar/garlic) croutons which created wonderful bites of flavor. I also used colby/jack cheese. This recipe is so easy to adapt so don't be afraid to use the ingredients you have on hand. Last thought the less juice included (from tomatos) the better. Enjoy! Read More

I changed this recipe a lot. You can do a lot of things to stuff the tomatoes. I used ground chicken with bell peppers (all I had). I didn't throw the stuffing of the tomatoes out but used it later for another sauce for the next day. Read More

My family loved this. I used regular Jimmy Dean sausage. About 3/4 of the roll. And Added over a cup of cooked rice in it. It was enough to stuff about 8 tomatoes. Very good! Read More

This recipe executed well my only problem is that the tomato is quite bland unless seasoned with some salt and pepper. So make sure you season the inside of the tomato before stuffing it. Read More
