    4. Scoop mixture into tomato shells up to the top of each tomato. Place on a foil-lined baking tray.
    5. Sprinkle each tomato with sunflower seeds, Parmesan cheese, garlic salt, onion powder, salt and pepper. If desired, sprinkle each tomato with parsley flakes and Worcestershire sauce.
    6. Bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes, then grill right before serving until tops are lightly browned, about 1 to 2 minutes.

    I am super stingy with 5 star ratings, so you know I think this is awesome. The worcestershire sauce takes it over the top, so I wouldn't call it an "optional" ingredient.  -  07 Oct 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
