  • Scrumptious looking tomatoes; love this recipe.

    • Different coloured capsicums look divine on the plate.


  • Yes, capsicums would be nice, especially the yellow ones.


  • Yum. THis looks so good. I think I will try this. Although I might do that with capsicums. I’m not a huge tomato fan.

    • Made these with red and yellow capsicums, tasted so good.


  • My 4 yr old would love the presentation of this. Another recipe to add to the recipe book!


  • The kids think these are like little presents! They love this recipe.


  • my husband will love this


  • I would substitute the turkey mince but regardless the recipe looks great – I never think to make things like this, thank you.


  • can you substitute the mince for different mince? I think these look delicious and would love to try with the different types of mince out there


  • These look and sound really delicious. I love the use of turkey mince instead of beef, pork or chicken. Turkey is so full of flavour, and seriously under-rated as a protein meal.


  • I don’t eat tomato s, but these would be great for a get together bbq


  • Good read thanks for the information


  • These sound amazing going to get the stuff for it tomorrow.


  • These would be great at a dinner party


  • these stuffed tomatoes look great


  • These are particularly visually appealing! Sure they taste good to!
