Fabulous as a starter, as a main with potatoes & vegetables of your choice or as a party buffet dish. Here is what you will need for these amazing low fat delights:
6 medium to large tomatoes
Half twin pack of bacon lardons
Half an onion finely sliced
Two tablespoons cooked rice
One mushroom finely chopped
One tablespoon quark
One tablespoon marinade
Grated cheese (optional)
Chopped parsley (optional)
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees & line a small roasting tray with foil alternatively, you can use a bun tin as shown.
Slice off the top of each tomato then scoop out each one (I find a long handled teaspoon perfect for this job) then save a tablespoon of the juice & seeds, discard the rest.
Heat a medium, non stick frying pan & add the bacon (I used smoked for this recipe), cook for a few minutes then add the onion & cook for a further two minutes ... add all the other ingredients except the grated cheese & the parsley & mix through, add the tomato juice then at this stage, season to taste.
Turn off the heat & place this delicious mixture into each tomato case, then sprinkle with grated cheese & parsley, put on their hats & cook for one hour & that’s it!
I have tried these with all varieties of the marinade & each one equally as delicious. I hope you will give them a go.
