Can I confess something..I don't really like tomatoes. It's true so this Slow Cooker Crock Pot Stuffed Tomatoes Recipe may come as a bit of a surprise but my dear husband John LOVES them.
Stuffed Tomatoes Recipe
He will happily eat tomatoes straight from the vine in the summer. Don't get me wrong I love salsa, marina sauce, and things made with tomatoes I just have a hard time with whole tomatoes. I don't know what it is.
This crockpot Stuffed Tomatoes Recipe makes me feel like it is still summer and we are picking fresh tomatoes from the garden.
When I asked John how to describe this recipe his response was...they are stuffed with cheese and breadcrumbs and they are tomatoes what isn't there to love.
LOL! He just giggled and asked when I would be making this recipe again.
These cheese-stuffed tomatoes are a great side dish or the perfect summer dinner. I love that they take less than 30 minutes to prepare and then the slow cooker does all the work.
