½-to-1 pound ground beef (depending on how meaty you want dish)
6 large, ripe tomatoes
½ teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon sugar
¼ teaspoon black pepper
¼ teaspoon onion powder
6 ounces grated cheddar cheese
6 ounces grated mozzarella cheese
Parmesan cheese to taste
Brown ground beef, drain and set aside. Place tomatoes in a pot of boiling water for 5 minutes or so, just long enough to loosen the peels. Peel and quarter the tomatoes and place in a 7-x11-inch baking dish. Sprinkle the tomatoes with the seasonings, then put the browned ground beef over the seasoned tomatoes; top with cheeses. Place in 350 F oven for 10â€“15 minutes, or until cheeses melt.
Note: Felicia says if onions are preferred over the onion powder, dice onions and cook with the beef. She also says Italian seasoning may be added with other seasonings to top tomatoes.
