Ingredients
Instructions
Oven Instructions
  1. Cut your tomatoes in half, and scoop out the insides.

  2. Place the tomatoes on a baking sheet (parchment paper makes the clean up much easier!).

  3. Combine cheese, garlic, thyme, and lemon zest and mix with a fork.

  4. Place a little bit of cheese in each hollowed out tomato.

  5. Set your oven to broil. If you get a choice between "lo" and "high" broil, choose high.

  6. Broil for 3-5 minutes. Watch closely because the broiler works fast. Remove from the oven when the cheese is melty and lightly browned.

  7. Drizzle with balsamic vinegar.

Recipe Notes

Really mush up the cheese with the fork when mixing. Feta is pretty chunky and you want the stuffing to be fairly consistent in texture.

 

Technically you could stuff the tomatoes ahead of time...but I would caution you not to store them in the fridge for longer than 1-2 hours. Tomatoes are happiest at room temperature and putting them in the fridge results in a mushy tomato. You may have better results making the cheese early and storing in the fridge in an air-tight container. Slice the tomatoes, cover, and store at room temperature for up to four hours. Stuff just prior to serving.
