Mother's day stuffed tomatoes

Side Serves 4 25 min
What makes these so quick and easy is that they're not properly stuffed, just cut in half and piled with a topping. Eat this for a simple starter or side – it's good with grilled fish or meat. Exchange the Parmesan for another hard cheese to keep it vegetarian.


  • 50g white breadcrumbs
  • 50g butter
  • ½ tsp Dijon mustard
  • pepper to season
  • 4 tomatoes, cut in half
  • 15g Parmesan, grated

    Place the tomatoes cut side up in a baking dish. Spread a little of the paste onto each tomato half. Sprinkle over the Parmesan. Bake for about 10-15 minutes.
