  • 4 large tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup parsley, chopped
  • 1/4 cup oregano, chopped
  • 1/2 tablespoon thyme
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 cup Gossner cheese blend (cheddar and mozzarella)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Cut the tops off of the tomatoes and scoop out the pulp; set aside. Do not pierce through the skin.

In a medium sized mixing bowl add the tomato pulp, parsley, oregano, thyme, Italian seasonings, bread crumbs, cheese, 1 tablespoon oil, salt and pepper to taste. Mix ingredients together.
In a 9×13 pan line up the tomatoes and fill each with the mixture. Top off with a sprinkle of the remaining olive oil. Bake for 18-22 minutes, until the cheese is melted.
