I am looking for a stuffed tomatoe recipe

I am looking for a stuffed tomatoe recipe that calls for sour cream and green onions along with the pulp of the tomatoe among other ingredients. My mother in law made this a while ago and I really enjoyed it , however she doesnt believe in sharing recipes and refuses to give it to me. All I can remember is sour cream and green onions are in it. I have tried duplicating it from my memory and I am forgetting some ingredients because it doesnt taste the same. If anyone has a similiar recipe for stuffed tomatoes with sour cream, could I please have it. Thank you.

TOconn1970: The only one I have with sour cream has spinach in it. I’m sure that it’s not what you are looking for, but I’ll post it just in case.


Stuffed Tomatoes With Spinach

2 tablespoons bacon drippings or butter
1/3 cup chopped onion
8 ounces fresh chopped spinach
1/2 cup sour cream
3 slices bacon, fried and crumbled
a few dashes Tabasco sauce or other hot pepper sauce
4 medium firm ripe tomatoes
salt, to taste
1/2 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
In a heavy skillet, cook onion in baking drippings or butter until tender. Stir in spinach; cover and continue to cook for about 4 minutes, until tender. Remove from heat and stir in sour cream.
Cut off tops of tomatoes; scoop out centers, leaving shell intact.
Sprinkle tomato shells lightly with salt and fill with spinach mixture. Place tomatoes in a lightly greased baking dish; bake at 375° for 20 minutes. Top each tomato with Mozzarella cheese and continue baking just until cheese is melted.
Makes 4 servings.

Hi TOconn1970… Obviously I don’t know your mother-in-law. No doubt she has many redeeming qualities. After all, you married her husband! :lol: No offence intended, but I must say, I can’t believe the audacity of people that won’t share a recipe with someone, particularly when it comes to a family member. Unless disclosing a recipe is strictly prohibited by franchise agreement or copyright law, hoarding a recipe, especially one that is enjoyed by others, is nothing short of selfish. Bottom line…yah can’t take them with yah, when your time comes…so spread a little joy now! Hope this helps. And if your mother-in-law likes the recipe…set an example and share it with her.
