    6 servings


  • 6 medium tomatoes
  • 1-1/2 cups chopped fresh mushrooms
  • 3 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup plus 3 tablespoons dry bread crumbs, divided
  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • In a skillet, saute mushrooms in 2 tablespoons butter until tender. Combine egg yolks and sour cream; add to mushrooms. Stir in 1/4 cup bread crumbs, salt, thyme, pepper and reserved tomato pulp. Simmer, uncovered, until thickened, about 1 minute. Spoon about 1/3 cupful into each tomato.
