A quick appetizer of tomatoes stuffed with cheese and garlic
Tomatoes are indispensable vegetables in the kitchen, especially seasonal fruits, which have a pleasant aroma and rich flavor.
The use of tomatoes in cooking is truly extensive: borscht, soups, pastries, salads, snacks, drinks based on tomato juice and so on.
But if you want something special, we advise you to make a snack of stuffed tomato.
For the filling is perfect: rice, mushrooms, any meat or minced meat, a mixture of vegetables, but we will focus on a more traditional and very tasty stuffing — cheese with garlic.
As a rule, it is a cold snack, but we will move away from stereotypes and make a warm snack of tomatoes stuffed with cheese and garlic.
Before taking up the tomatoes, wash the eggs well under the tap and set them to cook, pour in cold water and slightly salted.
To make them cool, cook from 7 to 10 minutes.
After the allotted time, chicken eggs immediately shift in cold water until it cools completely.
After this procedure, the eggshell is easily removed.
Tomatoes thoroughly rinsed and give a little dry.
Now with a sharp knife we cut off the top (where the stalk was) and with a small spoon scrape out all the pulp with juice, leaving some pulp on the walls for juiciness.
We perform these manipulations very carefully so as not to cut through the peel.
And from the tomato pulp, you can cook, for example, tomato puree soup, or, having overheated, season the borscht.
When the containers for stuffing are ready, proceed to the direct preparation of the filling.
To do this, we rub hard cheese on a small string and combine it with chopped garlic and finely chopped eggs.
Mixed dry ingredients filled with sour cream or homemade mayonnaise.
Tightly fill the prepared tomatoes with the filling, forming a small hill on top.
Put them on a baking sheet lined with baking paper and set in a preheated oven (t 200 degrees) for 10-12 minutes.
Enjoy your meal!
