Veal stuffed tomatoes

    1 hour 10 min

    Simple veal stuffed tomatoes, or you can use beef mince. The Parmesan cheese and parsley offer a lot of flavour. I love this recipe when tomatoes are in season, and like to use the ones from my garden.

    1. Preheat the oven to 190 C / Gas 5.
    2. Slice the top off each tomato. Hollow out the tomatoes. Reserve the pulp.
    3. Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a frying pan, and cook and stir the onion with a pinch of salt until translucent, about 3 minutes. Add the minced veal, and cook and stir until golden, about 5 minutes.

    5. Meanwhile, soak the bread cubes in the milk. Stir the bread mixture, the parsley and Parmesan cheese into the veal mixture.

    7. Bake in the preheated oven until heated through, about 30 minutes.
