Half the flavor power of this easy recipe is the taste of the freshest sun ripened tomato!
For this recipe, I did not have the option to pick the tomatoes in a vegetable garden. Size wise, when selecting them in the produce section of your neighborhood supermarket, aim for tomatoes that are 3 to 3 1/2 inches across.
A tomato that size makes a single healthy meal portion along with side dishes.
That’s an easy fix. Use a loose Italian sausage mix (spicy or sweet) and season to taste. Make it fresh garlic (as much as you want) and fresh parsley. Add to the sausage meat and stir well to combine evenly. Add the crumbled bread to the sausage mixture.
Try not to nibble on the sausage stuffing as you prepare it. I say this because I was hungry while making dinner. The result? Only enough sausage stuffing for three of my four tomatoes!
If the sausage stuffing still seems greasy to you, spoon onto a paper towel again just long enough to absorb any fat.
Nothing tastes like “home” more than Grandmère’s Sausage Stuffed Tomato recipe. Vine ripened tomatoes bursting with fresh flavor and stuffed with a well seasoned sausage filling then baked to juicy perfection.
