Stuffed Tomatoes

From our awesome friends at http://paleoonabudget.com/!!!

I saw another version of this somewhere forever ago, and tomatoes were on sale and looking yummy… so here\’s my take on stuffed tomatoes!

• Pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees

• Get that bacon cookin\’ in a pan, while that’s going Slice the top off of your tomato so it’s intact and you can use it to top your tomato later {see picture}.

• Scoop out the inside of the tomato { I used a knife along the edge of what I was scooping out to make it easier}. Save the inside of the tomatoes! You can use it to make a tomato sauce later on!

• Set your empty tomatoes aside. By now your bacon should be done, put it on a paper towel to let drain.

• In a bowl combine your herbs, ground beef, egg, garlic, onion. Then take your bacon and tear it into small pieces into the mixture {or you could chop it… I’m lazy so i tear it… and that way primal puggle and I can sneak a bite here and there}. Give it another good mix so it’s combine.

• Put your tomatoes in a baking pan with sides to it.

• Fill each tomato with your meat mixture {And I mean fill it people! Don’t be stingy the more the better} and top with it’s little tomato “hat”

• Drizzle a smidge bit of olive oil on top of each and sprinkle with a bit of salt + Pepper.

• Bake for about 25-35 Minutes.

• While it\’s baking you\’ve got time to munch on your bacon slice!

• Let cool for a few minutes, I served it with a side salad. I drizzled a little bit of Balsamic Vinegar over the tomatoes {so yummy}.

Enjoy!

I did have leftover meat mixture. I just stuck it in the freezer, and used it in a stirfry a few days later {or it\’d be good for stuffed cabbages, meatballs, chili, soup, etc}!

{So you’ve essentially just made yourself one dinner..and got another dinner ready to go!}
