Common Mistakes

One mistake that could be made when making this recipe is not removing all of the seeds from the cherry tomatoes. If there are still some seeds left in the tomato, it can cause the cheese filling to be runny. Another mistake that could be made is not letting the cheese mixture come to room temperature before stuffing the tomatoes. If the cheese is too cold, it will be difficult to mix and will not spread evenly in the tomato.
