I was looking for tomato recipes today, and found this one that sounds awfully good.
6 Tomatoes -- ripe
1 md Green pepper -- diced
1 sm Onion -- chopped
1/4 c Butter -- melted
1 c Rice -- regular, cooked
1 Egg -- well beaten
1/4 tsp Oregano
1/4 tsp Ground basil
1/2 tsp Salt
1 c Cheddar cheese -- shredded
4 sl Bacon -- cooked and crumbled
Wash and cut tops off tomatoes; scoop out pulp. Sprinkle inside of tomato shells lightly with salt; invert to drain. Chop pulp.
Saute green pepper and onion in melted butter. Add tomato pulp, rice, egg, and seasonings; mix well. Stir in cheese and bacon, saving a small amount of each to sprinkle on top of each tomato.
Fill tomatoes with rice mixture. Sprinkle tops with reserved cheese and bacon. Place tomatoes in a greased shallow baking dish; add a small amount of water, and bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes.
