Baked Tomato, Mushroom, and Spinach Wheels

So this probably isn't a good tailgating recipe in itself.  I haven't tried it yet but I'm thinking that putting one on a piece of grilled chicken would be super yummy.  We'll see if our tailgating crew would agree.


3 Large Red Tomatoes
Box of frozen chopped spinach
Sliced mushrooms (about 2 cups worth)
1/4 stick of margarine
1 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese
Garlic salt
Lemon juice
Balsamic Vinegar


Slice tomatoe and marinate in Balsamic Vinegar for 4-6 hours
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Thaw the frozen spinach and drain water
In a frying pan saute the spinach, butter, few squirts of lemon juice, and mushrooms until tender
Season with a few shakes of pepper, salt and garlic salt.  Set aside.
Bake marinated/slice tomato in the oven for 7 mins
Put a generous scoop of the spinach/mushroom mix on each tomato wheel.  Top with the cheese.
Broil in the oven until cheese is bubbly.


I know I went a little cheese crazy.  The baby was crying though so the best I could do was to just toss the cheese everywhere and throw it in the oven :-)  They were good even if they didn't look pretty.
