Arrow Tomatoes Rockefeller

Tomatoes Rockefeller
4 firm tomatoes
2 (10 oz.) packages frozen chopped spinach
1 cup panko or other plain bread crumbs
1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1 cup chopped green onions
6 eggs slightly beaten
3/4 cup butter melted
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon thyme
dash hot pepper sauce
1/4 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese

Remove the stems from the tomatoes and cut each into 3 thick slices. Arrange the slices in a single layer in a lightly greased baking dish. Cook the spinach using the package directions; drain well and squeeze out the excess moisture. (A recent post here suggested using a potato ricer to squeeze spinach wonderful notion.) Place the spinach in a bowl and add the soft bread crumbs and seasoned bread crumbs, green onions, eggs, melted butter, Parmesan cheese, garlic, salt, thyme and hot pepper sauce and mix well. Spoon the spinach mixture in mounds onto the tomato slices. Sprinkle with the Mozzarella cheese.
Bake at 350 for 15 minutes or until the spinach mixture is set and the Mozzarella cheese is melted.

Oh, good!

We've also done a similar mixture stuffed in yellow crookneck squash. (Cook the whole squash in boiling, salted water until tender. Carefully cut into halves lengthwise and scoop out seeds. Sprinkle shells with butter, salt, pepper. Spoon in spinach mixture and bake.)

This looks fabulous. My maters are just turning red, too.

Question: do you really have to cook the spinach or just thaw it?

I usually put the block of spinach in the microwave and "cook" it until it's neither too cold nor too hot to handle.

Sounds like a great recipe Sharon. Six eggs seems like alot of liquid for only two cups of bread crumbs. Was that a typo?

I'd say, "Hot ****," Sharon, but we're not supposed to cuss! That sounds perfectly marvelous.

Question on the squash, don't they cook fast enough that you could stuff them raw and then cook?
