What You’ll Need:
- 6 medium tomatoes
- Meat of choice, such as pepperoni, ham, sausage
- Veggies of choice, such as mushrooms, peppers, onions, etc.
- Shredded mozzarella cheese
- Oregano or Italian seasoning
- Olive oil
- Aluminum foil
- Use a small knife to cut the core out of each tomato.
- Cut the top of the tomato off, about half an inch down from the top.
- Use a spoon to carefully scoop out the tomato pulp and seeds as best you can, taking care not to break the tomato’s skin.
- If you have any raw meats, brown your meat in a skillet over your campfire. Brown your vegetables as well if you don’t want them particularly crisp. Sprinkle with oregano or seasoning.
- Cut squares of aluminum foil large enough to completely wrap each tomato. Lightly bush foil with olive oil.
- Fill each tomato with your meat and veggie mixture. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese on top and wrap the tomato in aluminum foil, leaving a little space at the top so that the cheese doesn’t melt to the foil.
- Once you have good cooking coals, place your tomatoes on the coals, making sure to keep the cheese side up, and cook for approximately 15-20 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the filling is warmed.
- Remove tomatoes from the coals, allow them to cool for a minute or two, and enjoy!
