How to Make Stuffed Tomatoes

  1. Carefully slice a thin wedge off the bottom of each tomato. This is to help them stand upright on the plate. Make sure you only slice the skin/flesh as you don't want to make a hole in the bottom as otherwise the filling will fall through.
  2. Slice a slightly bigger wedge off the stalk end of each tomato.
  3. Using a small coffee spoon or paring knife, scrape out the inside of the tomatoes.
  4. Mash the cream cheese with a fork, adding a bit of cream if the mixture is very stiff. Add the chopped chives and seasoning and mix well.
  5. Using an icing bag with a fairly wide star nozzle, fill each tomato with the cream cheese filling.
  6. Keep them in the fridge or a cool place until you want to eat them.

Suggestion: Try and make these on the day that you want to eat them as otherwise the filling might go slightly liquidy.
