Servings

6 serving s

Ingredients

  • 6 large, firm, unpeeled tomatoes
  • 3 cups mashed Idaho® potatoes (using fresh potatoes or instant potato flakes prepared according to package directions)
  • 1/4 cup fresh, chopped chives

4 In a medium mixing bowl, combine the potatoes, chives, thyme, pepper and 1 cup of the cheddar cheese. Fill tomato cups with the potato mixture using a teaspoon.
5 In a small bowl, combine bread crumbs, remaining 1/4 cup cheddar cheese and paprika; sprinkle on top of each tomato.
6 Place filled tomatoes in nonstick or well-oiled muffin cups. Bake 10 – 15 minutes until topping is crisp and tomatoes are heated through.
