  • 6 large smooth tomatoes
  • ½ cup finely chopped deli ham (I used Boar's Head low-sodium ham. The original recipe called for a boiled ham)
  • 12 small-medium mushrooms finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoon bread crumbs I used whole wheat panko bread crumbs, plus more for sprinkling on top
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • a dash cayenne pepper
  • 2 tablespoon melted butter I used smart balance butter blend


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Cut a slice off the top of the tomatoes and scoop out the the seeds.
  • Mix together ham, mushrooms, bread crumbs, parsley, salt, pepper, cayenne pepper and 1 tablespoon melted butter.
  • Fill tomatoes with this mixture, heaping it in the center.
  • Sprinkle a little bread crumbs on top of each one and drizzle with remaining tablespoon of butter.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for 35 minutes and broil for three more minutes, watching carefully to not burn.
  • Serve immediately.
