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

"I have made these for the past few years. They are certainly tasty, and they disappear like magic. Once, they were gone before we were ready to serve them!"

"I'm anxious to make these for Xmas. Eve Party, but they can't possibly use an entire pound of bacon. Maybe a few slices. Use a disposable piping bag, to fill them, and cut a good sized hole in the end, that will still fit in the opening of the tomato."

"These are a big hit at my work potlucks. Because they are so time consuming to stuff the tomatoes, I now by Roma tomatoes, slice into wedges and add the topping. I present this on a tray lined with the lettuce. Big hit at work!!! Also a big hit at the family potlucks! What's not to love about the bites?!"

"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."
