  • 2 tomatoes Large
  • 1/4 cup Feta cheese
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese plus 1 tablespoon grated
  • 1/4 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs plus 1 tablespoon
  • 1 teaspoon parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 clove garlic crushed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil plus some for brushing


  • Preheat grill on high. Clean and oil grates. Decrease temp to low on the section used for the tomatoes but leave other side on high or close to it.
  • Wash tomatoes and cut tops off. Spoon out inside being careful not to go through the outside.
  • Wash out the shells and take the inner core that you removed and wash off any seeds.
  • Chop the cores into 1/4 inch cubes removing any tough parts.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine chopped tomato, 1/4 cup each of feta, Parmesan, and Italian breadcrumbs. Add salt, pepper, parsley. Oregano, basil, and garlic. Mix well. Stuff tomato shells.
  • Mix 1 tablespoon parmesan, bread crumbs, and olive oil. Top each stuffed tomato with half of the mixture.
  • Brush tomato skin with oil and place over low heat.
  • Cook with grill lid closed for about 10 minutes until skin is falling off and the top is browning. Note: Carefully remove from the grill with spatula underneath, or it may fall apart.
