Using a paring knife core the tomatoes. The use a small spoon to gently scoop out the center of each tomato. Season the interior salt and freshly ground white pepper.
In a bowl mix together the bread crumbs, garlic, parsley, basil, thyme, and parmesan. Add a splash of olive oil and mix well. Divide the mixture evenly between the 4 tomatoes and place them in a baking dish.

Variations & Ideas
From Christian: If you have trouble sourcing fresh herbs, you can always use our Riviera Herbs blend, just rehydrate 3-4 teaspoons with some of juice squeezed from the tomato pulp you removed, then mix with the breadcrumbs. And for a bit of heat and a new flavor, try adding some Shabazi N38.
