This recipe, like many, came from necessity. My mother had tomatoes that were threatening to be over-ripen and needed to be used immediately. I took the tomatoes and other quick cooking items from the fridge and made this excruciatingly simple dish. —Daneka Hillery

What You'll Need
  • 4 Ripe tomatoes
  • 2 cups Cooked rice (your favorite kind)
  • 3 tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 2 pinches Salt and Pepper (to taste)
  • 4 tablespoons Feta Cheese
  • 2 sprigs Thyme
  • 1 sprig Rosemary
  • 2 Slices of bacon (optional)
  1. Hollow out the tomatoes and squeeze a little of the seeds out.
  2. Rub the tomatoes with olive oil and salt and pepper the outside of the fruit.
  3. Put a little more than half of the herbs and your salt and pepper in the bottom of the tomatoes.
