Instructions Checklist
  • Sprinkle the cut sides of the tomato halves with salt, and place cut sides down on paper towels for 15 minutes to drain.

  • Place frozen spinach, water, and chicken bouillon granules in a saucepan over medium heat; bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat, and simmer until spinach is tender, 8 to 12 minutes. Drain the spinach well.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Place tomatoes, cut sides up, into a 9x12-inch baking dish.

  • Mix together the spinach, 1/3 cup of Parmesan cheese, cornbread stuffing mix, melted butter, egg, onion, garlic, and black pepper in a bowl until thoroughly combined. Mound the mixture on the cut tomato halves.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until cooked through and hot, about 15 minutes. Sprinkle each tomato with about 1 teaspoon of Parmesan cheese, return to oven, and bake until the topping has browned, about 5 more minutes. Serve immediately.

Amazing! garlicky cheesy spinachy (is that a word?) all wrapped in a great knob of decadent warm wonderful tomato goodness. Try these in place of that scary frozen block of green beans you have shoved in the back of your freezer. I used fresh spinach and followed the directions just the same. I paired this up with another newer offering here on allrecipes.com Joanne's Jalapeno Chicken. A night of comfort food awaits you with this dynamic duo. Read More

it's a fairly good and colorful nice appetizer found the prep and cooking time to be closer to 25-30 minutes total making it something that can be put together pretty quickly in a pinch to accompany a chicken dish Read More

this is like a tomato topped with a spinach ball...great idea! I used herbed stuffing crumbs as I do in my spinach ball recipe and used less butter. The only problem I had... They got dried out on top when I broiled them maybe because I cut butter back to 1/4 cup. So I just brushed some butter on top and they were fine. Would not recommend as an appetizer. You need a fork and a knife. Read More

A little to vegatably for me. Needs more cheese or cream or something and make sure to not eat this with another onion heavy food. Read More

No disrespect to the poster but I subbed polenta because I didn't have the mix. They were amazing! One cup polenta (uncooked) yields enough stuffing to double the recipe or freeze for later Read More
