Ingredients

  • 8 slices of bacon
  • 8 medium tomatoes
  • 4 slices of bread
  • 1 cup (250 mL) Milk
  • 3 green onions finely chopped
  • 1 cup (250 mL) grated Canadian Cheddar cheese
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) salt
  • 1/4 tsp (1 mL) freshly ground pepper

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350 °F (180 °C).

Partially cook bacon slices; set aside.

Cut tops from tomatoes; scoop out pulp and retain, discarding juice and seeds. Turn tomatoes upside down on a paper towel to drain while preparing filling.

Remove crusts from bread; crumble bread and combine with milk; soak 5 min. Stir in remaining ingredients, including chopped tomato pulp and cheese.

Season the inside of each tomato cup with a pinch of oregano, salt and pepper; fill with savory mixture. Wrap a bacon slice around each tomato; secure with tooth picks. Bake in oven until filling is set, 15 to 20 min.
