This was delicious! My husband and I ate this for lunch, but I just carved out a large tomato, chopped it up with a can of white albacore tuna, added 2 tsps, Tostitos Salsa Con Queso, Panko breadcrumbs, stuffed the tomato boats and put it in the oven for 30 mins at 350. My husband said this is definitely a keeper.

6 plum tomatoes, cut in half = 12 pieces, divided by 4 = 3 halves per serving. I look forward to trying this recipe, and the ideas in the comments are helpful. Thanks.

How do you figure 4 servings with only 6 plum tomatoes?

My kids were disappointed that they didn't look more canoe-like. We made these after a long day of hiking above the Sprittle river and had really been looking forward to these.

Easy enough for a non-cook like me to manage. And very tasty! I will definitely make again, and might try Italian bread crumbs next time for a twist.
These were amazing! I tweaked it just a little, added some minced garlic,fresh parsley, basil, oregano, ground mustard, a hint of ground chili pepper and about a tablespoon of grated parmesan to them. I didn't bake them, I grilled them and then sprinkled just a hint of mozzarella cheese on top! Wowza!!

This was not only beautiful but so delicious that my husband could not believe that it was not served to him in a 5 star restaurant. I am an amazing cook but I could not believe that such a simple recipe could be so rich and delightful. I added about a teaspoon and a half to the breadcrumb/feta mixture but that was the only substitution that I made. Wow! Really, really good!!! Thank you so much for sharing!

This was totally delicious. I cut WAY back on the oil, though and used it in the filling rather than to marinate the tomatoes. My kids even loved this. I think next time I'll add some fresh basil and oregano to the filling. It tastes a lot like pizza sauce already, actually. YUM. Highly recommend this one!
