Tomatoes are indispensable vegetables in the kitchen, especially seasonal fruits, which have a pleasant aroma and rich taste..
The use of tomatoes in cooking is truly extensive: borscht, soups, pastries, salads, snacks, drinks based on tomato juice, and so on..
But if you want something special, we advise you to make a snack of stuffed tomato.
For the filling is perfect: rice, mushrooms, any meat or minced meat, a mixture of vegetables, but we will focus on a more traditional and very tasty stuffing – cheese with garlic.

As a rule, this is a cold snack, but we will move away from stereotypes and make a warm snack of tomatoes stuffed with cheese and garlic..
Before making tomatoes, we wash the eggs well under the tap and set them to cook, pour in cold water and salt a little.
Cook them for 7 to 10 minutes to make them cool..
After the allotted time, the eggs are immediately transferred to cold water until they cool completely..
After this procedure, the eggshell is easily removed..
Tomatoes thoroughly rinsed and give a little dry.
Now, using a sharp knife, cut off the top (where the stalk was) and, with a small spoon, scrape out all the pulp and juice, leaving some pulp on the walls for juiciness.
We perform these manipulations very carefully, so as not to cut through the peel..
And from the tomato pulp, you can cook, for example, tomato puree soup or, having overheated, season the borscht.
When the stuffing tanks are ready, proceed to the direct preparation of the filling..
To do this, we rub hard cheese on a small string and combine it with chopped garlic and finely chopped eggs.
Mixed dry ingredients filled with sour cream or homemade mayonnaise.
Tightly fill the prepared tomatoes with filling, forming a small hill on top.
Put them on a baking sheet lined with baking paper and set in a preheated oven (t 200 degrees) for 10-12 minutes.
Enjoy your meal!
