(This is a filling, great by itself meal)

  • One large tomato per person
  • Box of Croutons (Ceasar, or Regular)
  • Bottle Italian Dressing
  • Butter
  • Cubes of Cheese (Whatever is on hand, Cheddar, Mont Jack, both…..)
  • Whatever Trips Your Trigger Addition: Mushrooms or Broccoli or Zucchini or… Plain!

Remove top of tomato. Core out with a spoon to form a shell saving the insides in a large bowl. Preheat oven to 375. In Cassorole Dish, place tomato cases about 2 to 3 inches apart.

In Bowl, cut up the inside scoops that are too chunky into smaller chunks, add about a cup of croutons for every 2-3 tomatos…. Stir in 4 large splashed over tablespoons of italian dressing. Add about a cup of cubed cheese. If you are adding an addition, do it now.

Spoon into tomato cases pressing it down real good with a spoon as you go. Mound it high. Leftover goop can be heaped between tomatos. Dot with Butter and Bake for 30 min until tomatos are cooked and top browned well. Be sure when serving you share equally the cooked goop from around the tomatos! Prep time, 15 min! Then Baking! Melts in your mouth…
