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

MY REVIEW

"These are amazing! I made these for my in-laws anniversary party and they were gone within minutes. I used precooked bacon pieces for convenience and a grapefruit spoon to hollow out the tomatoes."

"These are really good but preparing the tomatoes is tedious a lot of work for a one bite snack. Will do the filling on crackers or baguette"

"Shouldn't this have some cream cheese in it or something? It seems to me this would just be an overly salty gob of salty bacon?"

MY REVIEW

"I have made this recipe for years. Back in 2006 my 16 year old daughter suggested just combining the stuffing ingredients in a food processor and pulsing until combined. I loved the result. It made the mixture easier to stuff into the tomato. We also used the small end of a melon baller to scoop out the inside of the tomatoes. These have been a hit at every holiday party, office party, etc. that I've ever taken them to. I always double the recipe, and there's nothing left."
