Cooking tomatoes with minced meat in the oven:
Step 1: prepare the tomatoes.
First, prepare the tomatoes. To do this, rinse the vegetables, and then carefully cut off the top. With a tablespoon, remove the pulp and seeds from the tomato, leaving the vegetables hollow. Turn the tomatoes gutted in this way upside down and set to dry on a cutting board for about 20-30 minutes.
Step 2: prepare the minced meat.
First, mix the ricotta cheese with the egg in a bowl and add the finely chopped greens. Then add thawed ground beef here, salt, pepper and mix well until almost uniform.
Step 3: stuff the tomatoes.
Spread the prepared filling with a tablespoon inside the hollow tomato, ramming it well. Try not to spoil the tomatoes by making holes or cracks in their skin. At the end, cover the stuffed tomatoes with the hats cut earlier.
Step 4: bake tomatoes with minced meat in the oven.
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
Put the tomatoes inside a heat-resistant form with high fields (do not forget to grease the form with oil). Bake tomatoes in the oven for 1 hour. If you notice that the caps of vegetables began to burn prematurely, cover the plate with tomato foil, but it depends on the oven, otherwise the foil may not be needed at all.
Step 5: serve the minced tomatoes in the oven.
An hour later, when the tomatoes and minced meat are baked, take them out of the oven, arrange them in portions and serve while hot.
