Crockpot Philly Cheesesteaks

The time has come…. I’ve officially scheduled to take part one of boards.  Now the pressure is on people! June 20th is the lucky day and  as I enter boards hell I will be needing many many more meals like this one. Quick and easy (that’s what she said).

I love the way this recipe turned out.  It was so simple to throw together in the crockpot and the flavors were delicious.  Life has been so so busy (as usual) and I loved coming home to a meal that had cooked itself all day.

Enjoy!

Baked Tomatoes Stuffed with Feta

Yesterday as a side dish, I made these delicious stuffed tomatoes.  They turned out so so good! Mina wasn’t a huge fan…he said there was too much cheese.  All the more reason I loved it! I made them next to chicken breast stuffed with tomatoes, black olives, and feta cheese (I’ll have to post that recipe later!).  It was scrumptious 🙂

Ingredients:

  • 4 large tomatoes
  • 1 cup of crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/4 cup of fine breadcrumb (I used the Italian flavored breadcrumb that I already had)
  • 2 tbsp of chopped parsley
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/8 tsp of pepper
  • 1/8 tsp italian seasoning
Instructions:
  1. Cut large tomatoes in half and scoop out pulp so that all you’re left with is the shell.  Save pulp in bowl and coarsely chop it.

  2. In a medium bowl, still together pulp, feta cheese, breadcrumb, parsley, olive oil, pepper, and italian seasoning.
  3. Spoon mixture into tomato shells and place in baking dish.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
  5. Dig in and enjoy!
