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 many years and they are always a hit. I really wish would people wouldn't criticize recipes without trying them first. Also if you think there is too much of a certain ingredient, bacon for example, don't make it."

"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"
