This is my per­son­al recipe. Ingre­di­ents are for one stuffed toma­to. More like­ly than not, you will have to make sev­er­al stuffed toma­toes, about one stuffed toma­to per per­son. Sprin­kling with cheese is option­al.

Tip: to emp­ty the toma­toes, you can use a big spoon like an ice cream scoop, or a cor­er.

Instruc­tions
  1. Slice the toma­to hor­i­zon­tal­ly so as to remove the top part. Set aside the top. Remove the inside pulp of the toma­to with a spoon or cor­er. Sprin­kle insides with salt. Turn the toma­to upside down, and set aside. This will allow any excess water to come out of the toma­to.

  1. Absolute­ly deli­cious. Excel­lent com­bi­na­tion of an Amer­i­can prod­uct since toma­toes are com­ing from this con­ti­nent and the French tra­di­tion­al cui­sine.
