This stuffed tomato recipe is not only yummy but makes for good-looking finger food, too! Using Sargento® Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese - Traditional Cut, spinach and crispy bacon, create the incredible filling that we will use to fill these cute tomatoes that will be baked to perfection.

Ingredients
  • 4 medium red or yellow tomatoes
  • 1 bag (6 oz.) baby spinach leaves
  • 1-1/4 cups (5 oz.) Sargento® Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese - Traditional Cut, divided
  • 4 slices bacon, cooked crisp, crumbled
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
Directions
  1. Cut tops off tomatoes; scoop out and discard seeds and pulp leaving tomato shells. Place cut sides down on paper towels to drain.
  2. Place spinach in microwave bowl; cook in microwave oven 2 minutes or until spinach is wilted. Drain well and transfer to chopping board to cool. Coarsely chop spinach; place in medium bowl. Add 1 cup cheese, bacon and bread crumbs; mix well.
  3. Place tomatoes cut-sides up in a shallow baking dish; fill with cheese mixture. Sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup cheese over tomatoes. Bake in preheated 350°F oven 16 to 18 minutes or until heated through and cheese is melted.
