Roma Tomatoes with Feta and Basil

Roma Tomatoes with Feta and Basil

My friends Brian and Christina served this simple dish at a dinner party at their house. Christina made it in their toaster oven! I never thought something so easy could be so incredibly delicious.
 

Ingredients

  • 2 Roma tomatoes
  • 4 Tablespoons crumbled feta cheese
  • 3 leaves basil, finely chopped

Directions

Preheat the oven or toaster oven to 400 degrees.

Cut the tomatoes in half and remove the cores, creating 4 halves. Fill each tomato with 1 tablespoon cheese, making sure it’s fully packed in. Sprinkle a little bit of chopped basil on each.

Place the tomatoes on a baking sheet or the tray of the toaster oven. They may roll to their sides, but if packed correctly, the cheese won’t fall out.
Bake for 5-8 minutes. They are done when the tomato skins are slightly shriveled and the cheese tops are golden brown.
