Veggie & Lox Stuffed Tasti-Lee Tomatoes!

Veggie & Lox Stuffed Tasti-Lee Tomatoes

 You can stuff just about anything you want inside of a delicious Tasti-Lee Tomato.  But, this weekend for brunch, I’ll be stuffing my face with the perfect mixture of fresh veggies and lox! It’s a great, grain-free alternative for those who love bagels and lox, without sacrificing ANY of the flavor!

The beautiful tomatoes give this dish great color and make for the perfect serving size.  They’re easy and quick to make, super healthy and most of all…DELICIOUS!  The creme fraiche is easily subbed out for sour cream, and if you’re more of a smoked salmon person as opposed to lox, that’s just fine too!
