Deviled Tomatoes


My sister brought these Deviled Tomatoes to our Easter Dinner. They were so YUM! I don’t think I would be brave enough to try this on my own without having tasted them first. Thanks, sis, for the great intro to Deviled Tomatoes. She’s an amazing cook and always willing to try new things. Consequently, her children will eat just about anything. They are brave kiddos! Now, I have a new idea how to use up the usual abundance of Roma Tomatoes this summer.
