If you are wanting the perfect springtime appetizer for a dinner party, a night outside with friends, or just a fun new recipe to try for dinner; this recipe is perfect! First of all, goat cheese is absolutely amazing and one of my favorite foods ever! I love how goat cheese goes with most foods. It’s delicious when it’s sweet, it’s delicious when it’s savory or mixed with herbs! I love stuffing things with goat cheese: stuffed mushrooms, Goat Cheese & Rosemary Savory Rolls, tomatoes, chicken, Goat Cheese & Chive Twice Baked Potatoes, Goat Cheese & Rosemary Mushroom Tartlets… it just adds amazing flavor! These stuffed tomatoes are really such an easy recipe & they are healthy & gluten free!
Dinner Party Ideas:
If you are hosting a dinner party. The best plan is to have at least 2 appetizers, 1 large main protein, 3 sides, and 2 desserts. This gives variety and choices to your guests. These tomatoes make for a great appetizer option. This option also fits in most dietary requirements because they are also gluten-free and low carb. When planning for a dinner party, make sure at least one of the appetizers is gluten-free or lower carb/lighter. This ensures two things: there will be something for everyone and your guests won’t fill up on heavier items before the main meal. Appetizers are an important part of a dinner party and these tomatoes are a great option!
Why Almond Flour?
Almond flour adds a little crunch and texture to the tomatoes. I like almond flour because it mimics bread crumbs, but it’s a healthier option. If you would like you could definitely swap this out for traditional bread crumbs. Just keep in mind this will add more carbs and calories (not a bad thing-just your preference).
Because these tomatoes are so quick to make, you can easily make these and several other quick appetizers for your guests or family. Simple appetizers like this are my absolute favorite!
