WSVN — Tomatoes aren’t just for salads or sauces when you do them up right, they can also make a main course meal. That’s what’s cooking tonight as we grab a Bite with Belkys.
The Chef: Josh Balch
The Restaurant: Beer 360 in Sunny Isles Beach
The Dish: Mount Eden Stuffed Tomato
1 each, large steak tomato
3 lbs. chopped turkey breast (or your favorite meat) 1 lb Ricotta cheese
8 ozs. diced onions
4 ozs. chopped parsley
8 ozs. Parmesan cheese
salt and pepper to taste
Method of Preparation:
– Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut the top of a large, ripe beefsteak tomato. Run a knife around the edge and with an ice cream scoop, take out the center of the tomato. Set aside and make stuffing.
-Mix the chopped turkey, chopped onion, ricotta and parmesan cheeses, chopped parsley and salt and pepper in a large bowl. Blend until you get a pâté consistency.
-Fill the tomato with a generous portion of the stuffing. Top with Parmesan cheese and bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. When it’s golden brown, it’s done!
Let it cool, then plate all by itself.
