We’ve sliced these juicy tomatoes hasselback style, before stuffing them with melty mozzarella and fragrant basil, so you get all those Italian-inspired flavours in every bite. Serve as a starter before a tasty pasta dish, or add one on the side of grilled meat or fish. We especially love them with toast or a crunchy green salad for a light, refreshing brunch.

Hints & Tips

Below we added some of our communities most common hints and tips. We hope you find them useful.

Placing the tomatoes stalk side down in the dish helps to keep them stable.

Didn't have fresh basil so sprinkled dried basil with the mozzarella. Turned out well, but may try fresh basil another time.
The perfect pizza lovers lunch
Put a wooden spoon at either side of the tomato to stop you slicing to far down
Great as a side dish with fish.
Rest tomatoes in a large serving spoon to cut them. Stops you cutting right through. Spread the garlic onto the mozzarella slices & put a basil leaf on top, it's then easy then to slip into the cuts.
