Prep Time: 20 Minutes
Total Time: 35 Minutes
Makes: 6 Servings
- 1 can (16 oz) BUSH’S® Vegetarian Baked Beans
- 1/4 cup softened, chopped sun-dried tomatoes, not packed in oil*
- 6 medium firm ripe tomatoes, about 7 to 8 oz each
- 2 tsp olive oil
- 1/2 cup chopped red onion
- 1/2 cup chopped yellow pepper
- 1 clove garlic, chopped
- 1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
- Breadcrumb topping:
- 1 slice white bread
- 2 Tbsp chopped herbs, such as basil, parsley, rosemary, thyme
- 1 tsp olive oil
If necessary, cover sun-dried tomatoes with hot water for about 10 minutes to soften.
Cut 1/2 inch off tops of tomatoes. Remove pulp from tomato with small knife, leaving a thick shell for filling and being careful not to cut through bottoms. Chop pulp and reserve 1/2 cup.
Heat olive oil in 10-inch nonstick skillet until hot. Add onion, pepper and garlic to skillet and saute until almost tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in sun-dried tomatoes, reserved tomato pulp, vegetarian baked beans and vinegar.
Cook until hot. Fill reserved tomato shells with bean mixture. Place tomatoes on a baking sheet.
For topping, break bread into chunks and place in blender or food processor with garlic and herbs. Blend to fine crumbs. Add olive oil and stir. Sprinkle breadcrumb topping evenly among tomatoes.
Place baking sheet with tomatoes on grill and cook on medium heat until tomatoes are hot, but not overcooked, about 15 minutes.
