Cooking Baked Stuffed Tomatoes:
Step 1: prepare the tomatoes.
Rinse the tomatoes properly, gently cut off the top (where the stalk was used to be) and peel the tomatoes from the inside, removing the seeds and pulp with a teaspoon. Be careful not to damage the walls.
After you peel the tomatoes, lightly salt them from the inside and, turning the slice down, leave them on paper towels to stand on 15-20 minutes.
Step 2: prepare the cheese.
Mozzarella cheese, drain the brine from it, cut into small cubes. Do not be very small and you can leave 13 thin slices to cover stuffed tomatoes on top.
Step 3: prepare the olives.
Rinse the olives with running water, dry and cut into quarters, it will turn out just right, not very large, but not very small.
Step 4: prepare the bread.
Cut the slices of the toasted or oven-dried bread into small cubes, as finely as possible.
Step 5: prepare the filling.
Mix cheese, olives and bread in a bowl, add washed and finely chopped basil leaves. Salt to taste and mix well to make something like a salad.
Step 6: stuff the tomatoes.
Previously prepared tomatoes, which have become like hollow cups, fill with a filling of cheese, bread, olives and basil. Fill each vegetable with a slide.
Stuff the stuffed tomatoes in a form greased with vegetable oil.
Step 7: bake stuffed tomatoes.Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius and send stuffed tomatoes to bake. Cooking is necessary until the mozzarella is thoroughly melted. You can also lay a thin slice of cheese on top of each tomato, then you will need to bake everything until this slice becomes a browny-brown color and forms a crust.
Step 8: serve the baked stuffed tomatoes.
Serve the baked stuffed tomatoes not immediately after cooking, but a little later, allowing them to cool. This is a great warm appetizer for all occasions. Very tasty and flies off the table in an instant! Only have time to try it yourself.
Enjoy your meal!
- You can not bake stuffed tomatoes in the oven, all the same they turn out to be tasty and mouth-watering.
- By the way, a small amount of pulp, peeled from a tomato, can be added to the filling, but a little so that it does not work out very wet.
