These quick hors d'oeuvres may be mini, but their bacon and tomato flavor is full size. I serve them at parties, brunches and picnics, and they're always a hit...even my kids love them. —Kellie Remmen, Detroit Lakes, Minnesota

These were yummy. I got rave reviews and many recipe requests when I made these. Not one was left!

I have been making these appetizers for a few years now. They never last! This is a great appetizer to bring to a party since you don't have to worry about keeping them warm. I have taken other's suggestions and used chive and onion cream cheese instead of the full amount of mayo, and it's great! These are always a hit for the guys too, which is perfect for poker parties, fight nights, superbowl and more. Thanks for the recipe! And SheeDreems... less drama, more cooking.

SheeDreems......why don't you just submit your own recipe instead of writing it here. The delicious little bites of tomato were a great idea, much better and eye appealing than yours sounds

These are very good but could be better if they were actually BLT Bites. I don't know who named these but they aren't BLT's without the lettuce. The second time I made these Instead of parsley I tore or cut up small bite size pieces of lettuce and added it. Why they didn't add small cut up pieces of lettuce to begin with is beyond me - you can always use a food processor to cut up the lettuce to take out some of the labor involved in cutting up the lettuce. This recipe was so much better then the first time I made these! Just because you say they are BLT Bitrs doesn't make it so. Shame on the namer of this recipe. Mine were true BLT Bitrs! Oh, I always add a little salt and pepper to these, just a little. They are a bit labor intensive especially for a person with a bad back. The third time I made them I switched it up a bit due to my back. I made the mixture, leaving out the parsley and added the lettuce. I toasted light whole wheat bread and light white bread, cut them 1/4th and 1/8th slices. I laid a piece of loose leaf lettuce or green leaf lettuce (romain is also good to use) on each slice, topped the lettuce with an appropriate sized tomato slice and topped the tomato slice with the bacon mixture, and if you want to make these look a bit fancier top each with an appropriate piece of bacon without the fat on it - they look wonderful!! I then did the same exact thing with a variety of crackers (Club, Ritz, Triscuits , Sociables, etc.). Every single one of them disappeared before one of my other appetizers were even touched!!! This was soooo much easier, a lot less messy to do and much, much quicker too and you had true BLT Bites!!!
