Potato Stuffed Tomato

This is one of the easiest and tastiest stuffed tomato I have ever had. It is super easy to make and I used to make it san cheese for dinner atleast twice a week when I was in UK.

You need:
Tomato - 4
Potato - 1/2 cup boiled and mashed
Oregano - 1 tsp (as per taste)
Pepper - 1 tsp crushed (as per taste)
Garlic - 1 tsp Minced (as per taste)
Salt
Olive oil - 1 tbsp
Cheese - 3 tbsp grated (I use Mozerella)


Method:
Chop the top of the tomato (about 1/2 cm)
Remove the pulp with the help of a spoon
Chop of 1/4 cm from the bottom of the tomato so that the tomato stands on its base.
Dip your finger in little salt and rub the salt into the tomato
Keep it upside down on the paper to ensure all the water and any remaining pulp drops off
Heat 1 tsp oil, fry the minced garlic for a min or two till it changes colour slightly
In the mean time, mix the mashed potato, oregano, salt, garlic and crushed pepper
Stuff this mixture into the tomato
Keep a little mixture on top to form a peak
Brush olive oil on the outside
Grease a baking tray with oil and arrange the stuffed tomato in it
Top the tomatos with Grated cheese
Pre-heat oven to 190C
Bake the tomatos to 12 - 15 mins
Serve hot





Enjoy :)
