Baked Tomatoes with Sausage

Carole's Chatter: Baked Tomatoes with Sausage


Today I give you Baked Tomatoes with Sausage.  The amount of spiciness will depend entirely on the sort of sausage you use.

Ingredients:

4 large tomatoes
3 sausages (pork with honey and mustard)
¼ chorizo
¼ cup breadcrumbs
¼ cup chopped parsley
1 tblspoon lemon zest
1 tsp lemon juice
½ cup grated parmesan
1 tsp oil
Some parsley for garnish

Method:

Heat your oven up to a moderate heat (170C) and while it is heating prepare your tomatoes.

You cut the top off and then scoop out the pulp and seeds in the middle.  I used a little spoon to do this.  Turn the tomatoes upside down onto some paper towel to drain while you prepare the stuffing.

In a large bowl mix the sausage meat (you have to take it out of its skin) with  the breadcrumbs, parsley, lemon zest and juice and ½ of your parmesan.  When it is combined spoon it into your tomatoes.  I pressed the mixture down a bit with a spoon to make sure each tomato was full.

Sprinkle the rest of your parmesan over the top.

Bake in the oven for 20 minutes.  Serve hot with a sprinkling of parsley as a garnish.

This dish both looks and tastes nice.

  1. I've eaten stuffed peppers many, many times, but I've never had (or even known about) stuffed tomatoes. Thank you.

  2. I've tried this. But I skipped the part where you drain them upside down on paper towels. I need to do that because mine were too juicy! Good tip :)
