Default Bacon stuffed tomatoes

3 slices turkey bacon, cooked drained and chopped
1/3 cup chopped romaine lettuce
1/3 cup coarse soft whole wheat bread crumbs
2 Tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese
2 tsp. olive oil
2 medium plum tomatoes
1/8 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
2 tsp. acceptable mayonnaise
Cherry tomatoes, halved (optional)


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

2. In medium bowl combine bacon, lettuce, crumbs, cheese, and olive oil; mix well. Set aside. Halve plum tomatoes lengthwise. Scoop out insides leaving 1/4- to 1/2-inch shell. Sprinkle inside of each tomato half with pepper. Brush with some of the mayonnaise. Mound bacon mixture in tomatoes; transfer to baking pan.

3. Roast tomatoes, uncovered, 10 to 12 minutes or until tomatoes start to wilt. Garnish with cherry tomatoes.

Makes 2 servings.

This looks really good, and I'd like to try it, but I wonder about the lettuce... What texture did it have after cooking?

This does sound good, but I think I'd substitute spinach for the lettuce. I'm not sure I'd like the results of cooked romaine. Does it hold up well?

These sound very yummy! I need a change from just salad for a side dish with my meat. I will let you know what I think.
