1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
2 onions, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1-1/2 pounds fresh spinach, stemmed and chopped
1-1/3 cups whole-wheat bread crumbs
2 eggs, beaten
salt, to taste
8 to 10 small tomatoes
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Cut tomatoes in half horizontally and scoop out seeds using a metal spoon. Place in an 8x8-inch baking dish (you may have to trim the bottoms so the tomatoes stand up). 
  3. In a skillet over medium heat, melt butter. Add onions and garlic and cook until onions are translucent. Add spinach and cook until tender, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and stir in the bread crumbs, eggs, and salt. 
  4. Stuff tomatoes with spinach mixture. 
  5. Bake for 30 minutes. Serve hot.
