Savory Baked Tomatoes
2 large fresh tomatoes
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 small onion
1/2 cup ready-made poultry dressing
1/4 teaspoon thyme
2 teaspoons bread crumbs
2 tablespoons melted butter
1 teaspoon butter
Wash and cut off the tops of the 2 tomatoes and with a small spoon scoop out the insides, leaving a 1/2-inch wall all around the tomatoe. In a frying pan, put the tablespoon of butter to melt. In it lightly fry the cut-up onion. Add the poultry dressing mixed with the thyme and when nicely browned add the 2 tablespoons of melted butter and scooped-out pulp to moisten the dressing and bind it together. Stuff the tomatoes with this mixture, top each one with a teaspoon of bread crumbs, and then with 1/2 teaspoon of butter each. This is a rich stuffing, for a substantial vegetable.
