What you may ask is a T.M.T.? It is a Tuna Melt Tomato. They could be just called Stuffed Tomatoes, but T.M.T. sounds WAY cooler.
A few days ago Greg from Sippity Sup had announced a tomato contest, I figured why not? So, here's my entry. Besides, I felt like eating something relatively light after that feast from last week. =)
Tuna Melt Tomatoes
4 Medium sized tomatoes
1 5oz can tuna (in oil)
2 tsp Mayo
2 tsp Sweet Relish
1 C Panko Crumbs
Shredded Mild Cheddar
A few pieces of romaine lettuce.
Preheat the oven 350˚F.
Cut the tops off of the tomatoes. Then carefully cut and scoop out the ribs and seeds, making it into a hollow bowl. Set Aside.
Drain most, but not all of the oil from the tuna. Mix in Mayo, relish and panko crumbs. Blend thoroughly.
Divide the tuna mixture evenly among the tomatoes and top with some cheddar cheese.
Drizzle a little olive oil in a baking pan and place the tomatoes over.
Bake for 20 to 25 min. Serve immediately. Place the tomatoes over the lettuce leaves on a dish
The best way to enjoy this is to place some of the tuna and tomato in the lettuce leaf and eat it like a wrap.
