Red with gold streaks stuffing tomato
I have listed stuffing type tomatos before but dropped them. Why? Because they didn't make any sense to me. I am not a chef type guy, everybody who knows me will attest to that. Not long ago, I ran across a short article with a photo of a stuffed tomato and it was a revelation. I had always visualized a cooked, stuffed Pepper. I knew there was no way you could actually bake a tomato like you would a pepper, even with my limited culinary skills, I knew it would turn to mush. So, anyway, this picture I saw....it was a tomato stuffed with a cold tuna salad! Duh! Of course! What a terrific idea- cold salads. Suddenly, the possibilities seem endless. What an elegant idea for a mid-summer meal.
Stuffers are kinda' weird. Essentially they are hollow. The seed is clustered together in the center, sort of like a strawberry shaped glob of jelly. A quick scoop and you are ready to go. Flavor-wise, the tomatos themselves are nothing to write home to Mom about about, but that is not the point. The size is medium, I would imagine it will take more than one to satisfy a piggish person like me. There are a couple other stuffing types you will run across in my list, such as Pink Stuffer. All re-added to our selection this year now that I know what we are supposed to do with them. For you chef-types, grow some of these. If you create a masterpiece, send a photo and perhaps a recipe you used and I will add it to this site. That would be so cool.
