Provencal Stuffed Tomatoes Recipe at
Preheat the oven to 375 degress F.

Remove the stem ends from the tomatoes. Place the tomatoes stem-side-down (to make the tomatoes more secure) and cut in half. Carefully remove the seeds with a teaspoon. Season with some salt and leave, cut-side-down, on paper towels to drain for about 20 minutes.

Gently heat the olive oil until warm. Remove from the heat and add the garlic, thyme, parsley and bread crumbs. Season with salt and pepper and mix well using a wooden spoon. Season the tomato halves with pepper and fill with the bread stuffing, ,making a slight dome on top of each tomato half. Place in an oiled baking dish and drizzle with some extra olive oil. Bake for 5-10 minutes, or unitl the stuffing is golden.

This recipe would also work successfully using eight small tomatoes with the tops cut off and the seeds scooped out.

This is very good and makes a very attractive side dish for less colourful meals. A perfect fall dish when fresh tomatoes are plentiful.
