Beefy Tomatoes

Ingredients

  • 6 medium tomatoes
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1⁄2 cup cooked rice
  • 1⁄2 cup shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten

Directions

  1. Cut a thin slice off the top of each tomato and discard; remove core. Carefully scoop out pulp, leaving a half-inch shell. Reserve 1 cup pulp (discard remaining pulp or save for another use). Invert tomatoes onto paper towels to drain. In a nonstick skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the basil, salt, pepper and reserved tomato pulp; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 10-12 minutes or until the liquid has evaporated.

  2. Stir in the rice, cheese and egg; heat through. Spoon into tomato shells. Place in a shallow 2-quart baking dish coated with nonstick cooking spray. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until heated through.
