A Comfort Food Recipe

I love comfort foods, don't you? Foods that we really should not eat because they are usually full of rich ingredients like.........butter.
However, I can never break away from butter or comfort foods. This book is full of such recipes! Quick and easy recipes and some recipes you remember Mama or Grandma making.
I love tomatoes and always love to fix them differently.
this is such a wonderful, tasty way to do a tomato! A wonderful comfort food!

Cheese and Bacon Stuffed Tomatoes

4 medium tomatoes, very firm

12 slices of bacon, cut into pieces

1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper

1/2 cup chopped onion

1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese, grated

2 tbs. cracker crumbs or dry bread crumbs

1 tbs butter
Preheat oven to 400 F. Butter a 9x12 baking dish. Remove the tops of tomatoes and carefully scoop out the pulp of the tomato and set aside. Drain the tomatoes , upside down, on a rack.
Cook the bacon until it is almost done. Drain off the fat and add the green pepper and onion and saute until onion is transparent. Remove the skillet from the heat and stir in 1 cup of the cheese and tomato pulp. Fill the hollowed tomato shells with this mixture. Sprinkle remaining cheese on the top, then the bread crumbs. Dot with butter.Bake for 30 minutes. Enjoy!
