    Recipe -
    Cut off top and remove seeds from 18+ cherry tomatoes. Heirloom are your most flavorful choice. Set aside.
    Then mix in a bowl 1/2 cup shredded mozerella
    1/4-1/2 cup bread crumbs - Start with 1/4 and add as you go so all the cheese is lightly coated
    2+ tbsp olive oil (enough so everything sticks and blends well)
    a handful of fresh chopped basil, salt and pepper.

    Stuff tomatoes and bake at 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes. Eat hot, OR cold as a side or appetizer.

    Of course you can use full size tomatoes and let them cook a little longer! [​IMG]

    ANy cheese will work, but its the bread crumbs and oil that make it all brown and crisp on top... while the cheese inside is gooey!

    I was lucky enough to have a ton of my Chocolate Cherry Tomatoes ready. They are thick and work well for cooking. They are also VERY flavorful. I am going to save seed and grow these again, next year for SURE!
