  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Slice off top third of tomatoes, reserving “lids”. With spoon, scoop out tomato pulp into bowl; reserve for another use. Turn hollowed out tomatoes upside down on kitchen towel and let drain.
  2. Meanwhile, in clean bowl, combine turkey, egg, shallot, breadcrumbs, parsley, Dijon, salt, pepper and ½ cup (125 mL) of the cheese; divide in four portions.
  3. Grease a non-metallic square baking dish. Turn tomatoes, cut side up, in dish. Stuff tomatoes with turkey mixture; sprinkle with remaining cheese. Top each with a lid, pressing lightly. Drizzle tomatoes with olive oil.
  4. Bake until turkey meat loaf mixture is cooked through and tomatoes are tender, 35 to 45 minutes.
