Ingredients

  • 12 campari tomatoes
  • 1/2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 8 oz goat cheese (softened)
  • 2 TBSP honey (optional but DELISH!)
  • 2 TBSP chopped green onion
  • 1 TBSP chopped fresh parsley plus extra to garnish

Instructions

  1. Cut a thin slice off the top of each tomato with a sharp paring knife
  2. Run the knife along the inside of the tomato in a circular motion to release the inside, then scoop out with your index finger to remove the seeds and such and create a little bowl.
  3. Repeat for each tomato.
  4. Next toast your panko. Bring a skillet to medium high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  5. Add panko and toast until golden, stirring frequently for about 1-2 minutes.
  6. Combine goat cheese, honey, green onion, parsley, and mix well.
  7. Spoon a dollop into each tomato. You can also add the filling to a piping bag or plastic bag with the edge cut off and pipe the filling into the tomatoes <-- this method is super speedy if you're making a bunch!
  8. Top with panko and garnish the tray with some extra parsley for a burst of color.
  9. Dig in and devour!

Recipe Notes

Campari tomatoes are between a cherry and plum tomato in size, perfect for stuffing and an easy peasy bite-sized snack!

If using cherry tomatoes, you'll need a few extra. If using plum or roma tomatoes, slice each tomato in half before stuffing and you'll use approx. 3 for this recipe. Double, triple, and quadruple the recipe as needed to feed a crowd!

Not a fan of goat cheese? Don't fret! Try 'em with cream cheese.

MAKE AHEAD INSTRUCTIONS:

Stuffed tomatoes may be made in advance and kept in the fridge, minus the panko itself. Toast your panko and store, tightly wrapped, at room temperature, then add before serving.
