Original recipe yields 24 stuffed cherry tomatoes

Directions

  1. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the cheese, basil, salt and pepper. Mix with a fork until well blended.
  2. Cut the top off each cherry tomato. Using a small spoon, carefully scoop out the pulp to make a hollow, yet sturdy, shell. Drain off any juice that may be in the tomato shells.
  3. Using a small spoon, scoop about 1 teaspoon of the cheese mixture and carefully stuff into a tomato shell. Repeat until tomatoes or cheese mixture is used up. Arrange the filled tomatoes on a platter to serve.

I really enjoyed these. Made them for a party and they were a big hit. I used a serrated grapefruit spoon to do the tomatoes, which worked well.

Good stuff! I took a tiny slice off the bottom so they would sit upright. I also added some roasted garlic to the mix and it was a little creamier. I put it in a ziplock, snipped the corner off and piped into the tomato cups.

I thought this was a great recipe! Well worth the time of hollowing out all those cherry tomatoes (I doubled the recipe). I used it for my boyfriends art opening and people loved them! I did take other reviewers advice and did not use any salt and it was a good thing I did. It would have been way too salty otherwise. I also used a combination of feta and crumbled blue cheese for added flavor.
