    6      Large         firm tomatoes
    1      C.            precooked rice
    1      C.            grated process cheese (7 oz.)
      1/2  Clove         garlic -- chopped

 Thoroughly grease 8 x 8 x 2-inch baking dish. Heat in

 Set aside. Rinse and remove stem ends from tomatoes. Cut 1/4
 inch slice from top of each tomato and set aside. With a sharp
 knife, cut down around inside tomatoes being careful not to cut
 through bottom. With a spoon scoop out center pulp. Sieve
 tomato pulp and set aside liquid. Sprinkle each tomato with

 1 tablespoon tomato liquid over each. Replace tops of tomatoes.

 Variation:
 Stuffed Oranges: Stuff oranges like tomatoes, but
 omitting the rice and ground meat. Use only bread crumbs,
 ground with butter or oleo, egg, parsley and salt, pepper and
 some grated cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for about 1 hour.
