Ingredients

  • 2 1/2-inch slices rustic bread, torn into small pieces (3/4 cup)
  • 4 medium-size ripe tomatoes, halved
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Pinch of red-pepper flakes
  • 1/2 shallot, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup corn kernels (from 1 ear)
  • 3 cups packed chopped greens, such as beet, Swiss chard, or spinach
  • 3 ounces fresh mozzarella, sliced (1/2 cup)

Directions

  1. Preheat broiler with rack 8 inches from heat source. Toast bread on a rimmed baking sheet, stirring once, until crispy, about 2 minutes. Remove from oven; set aside.

  2. Scoop out seeds and flesh from each tomato into a bowl; reserve. Arrange tomato halves in a broiler-safe baking dish; season with salt and pepper.

  3. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat. Add pepper flakes and shallot; cook until just tender, about 2 minutes. Increase heat to high; add reserved tomato flesh and juice. Cook, stirring, until reduced by half, about 2 minutes. Add corn and greens; cook, stirring, until vegetables are tender, about 2 minutes. Season with 1/2 teaspoon salt.

  4. Fill tomato halves with vegetable mixture, dividing evenly, then sprinkle with toasted bread, drizzle with remaining 1 tablespoon oil, and top with cheese. Broil until cheese is bubbly and golden in spots, about 2 minutes. Serve warm.

    These were pretty tasty! I added half of a can of diced green chiles to up the flavor quotient a bit and used Panko to save time (and prevent unnecessary kitchen heat in the summertime!). See my full review here: http://theyearofmartha.com/2014/07/10/review-stuffed-tomatoes-with-mozzarella/
