Reviews for Caprese Tomato Bites
"My family liked these a lot! They ate them all! I however did not like them? I love tomatoes, mozzarella and olive oil but these were not for me."
"Made these for a July 4th party and they were gone in minutes!"
"This took way more than 30 min. to make. The taste was good but I couldn't use my piping bag, it just got jammed with the cheese so I needed to use a 1/2 teaspoon which added to the time."
"This recipe is so easy to make. The drizzle of vinegar adds a little zing to each bite. Very fresh and great for a backyard get together."
"I made this for 4th of July and everyone loved it. I also used the leftover filling to top a pizza and it was delicious."
"Took this to a fourth of July party and everybody loved it. Everyone commented on how good they were. Scooping out the tomatoes was a bit time consuming, and piping the filling a bit fussy but pretty quick, and they looked great. The whole recipe took about an hour and cost about $10. Definitely a keeper."
"wonderful tasting, made it for a group, many wanted the recipe, thanks"
"I made these as an appetizer for a women's retreat and they were a big hit. If you have filling left over it's very good on snack crackers."
"These were very colorful and very tasty. I made them 4 hours before the event, and put them in the fridge. They were perfect after that time."
"how long before you use these can they be made?"
