Stuffed Tomatoes

Do you have a lot of ground beef in the freezer that you just don't know what to do with? I think we all have our usual recipes that require ground beef, but sometimes we get sick of the same ole' thing. Today I wanted to share a recipe I came upon in my "101 Things To Do With Ground Beef" that I think your family may enjoy. Plus on a high note most of the ingredients you probably already have in your pantry. I'm a tomato lover (fresh tomatoes from the garden are AAAmazing to these taste buds). So if you have any garden tomatoes that you froze from your harvest I recommend splurging that pulling them out for this meal.

Stuffed Tomatoes
6 medium sized tomatoes
1 pound ground beef
1/4 cup minced onion
1 cup milk
1/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon curry powder
1/2 buttered breadcrumbs

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Cut a very thin slice from the top of tomatoes and carefully spoon out centers. Turn tomato "cups" upside down to drain and set aside.
Brown ground beef and drain off excess fat (everyone has their own way of browning hamburger, so I'll let you take care of that step) and combine with onion in a frying pan to "be marry"
In a small bowl combine milk, flour, salt, pepper and curry. Pour mixture into meat and bring to a boil over medium-low heat and boil 1 minute. Spoon meat mixture into tomato cups. Place tomato cups in a baking pan and sprinkle tops with buttered breadcrumbs. Bake 17-20 minutes or until golden brown. Makes 6 serving.

Ground beef is a very versatile product, it just requires some creativity every once and a while. It's also great to share your family favorites with others:) And talk about a complete well-balanced meal (Cha-Ching). By incorporating beef into your diet you're supply your body with vitamins and minerals especially high in Zinc, Iron, Protein and Vitamin B12. (ZIP).

Let me know the results of your taste panel.
