My Granny Gave Me This Recipe For Cheese Stuffed Tomatoes 

Sometimes the simplest things can be the best things. These Cheese Stuffed Tomatoes are one of those things. They are nothing overly fancy, but when all put together they are pure heaven. My Granny has been making these for many years and she recently gave me the recipe to help use up some of the tomatoes from my overflowing garden.

These Stuffed Baked Tomatoes Are Perfect For One Or A Crowd

I am thrilled to have found this recipe again! With Jorge leaving, I will need things that I can make in single portion sizes. This recipe can easily be cut down to make just one big one for me! 🙂 While I am on that subject, anyone have any recipes or ideas to share of things I can make just for one? I don’t want to go back to my single girl days of cereal for dinner…not saying that is not going to happen…but it would be good if it was not every night!

    I did this today with some fresh off the vine early girls and it was delicous. I set the oven temperature to 450 degrees and baked them for 15 minutes. This recipe is going into my regular rotation.

    Hi these look fantastic & they’re exactly what I needed to add to my menu tomorrow. Just one question though, why wrap each tomato individually in foil?
