Baked Tomatoes Stuffed with Cheesy Potatoes

The baked, stuffed tomatoes can be prepared in advance and cooked to order. Their own velvety sweetness is enriched with cheddar-cheesy mashed potatoes, chives, thyme and paprika.


6 large, firm tomatoes
Salt, to taste
3 cups mashed Idaho potatoes
1⁄4 cup chopped fresh chives
1⁄2 tsp. dried thyme
1⁄4 tsp. ground pepper
1 1⁄4 cup shredded cheddar cheese, divided
1⁄4 cup dry bread crumbs
3 tsp. paprika


  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF.
  2. Remove stem end and hollow out each tomato, removing seeds and juice. Sprinkle inside of tomatoes with salt; place upside down on cooling rack to drain for about 15 min.
  3. In bowl, combine potatoes, chives, thyme, pepper, and 1 cup cheddar. Fill tomato cups with potato mixture.
  4. In small bowl, combine bread crumbs, remaining 1⁄4 cup cheddar cheese, and paprika; sprinkle on top of each tomato.
  5. Place filled tomatoes in non-stick or well-oiled muffin pans. Bake 10-15 min., until topping is crisp and tomatoes are heated through.
