Recipe: Baked Tomatoes

Cut a slice from the top of the tomato and with a spoon remove the centres. Chop the centres fine and then place in a bowl and add

  • One onion, grated,
  • Two tablespoons of finely chopped parsley,
  • One well-beaten egg,
  • One teaspoon of salt,
  • One teaspoon of paprika,
  • Three-quarters cup of fine bread crumbs,
  • Three tablespoons of melted shortening.

Grease the tomatoes to prevent bursting and then fill, forming into a point at the top. Place in a greased baking pan and add one-half cup of hot water. Bake for forty minutes.
