BLT Bites

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

    Delicious! These are very time consuming but well worth the effort! Once you start eating them, it's hard to stop.

    Absolutely impossible to scoop out the cherry tomatoes - way too time consuming. After two, I minced up all of the tomatoes and added them to the rest of the ingredients to use as a dip.

    These are excellent! I did as others suggested and used the Campari tomatoes and I added diced avocado and lettuce. Other than that made as stated and these were so simple and easy.

    I followed another reviewer and used Campari tomatoes with half cream cheese and half mayo. Since it was just two of us I tried wrapping some long lettuce leaves around each one (with careful instructions to hubby to watch for toothpick holders). They made a great side dish - thanks so much for the recipe, we'll use it again soon!

    This is a great recipe. I use campari tomatoes, slit lengthwise, and scooped out. Easier and faster than using cherry tomatoes. And you get a bigger bite!

    5 stars for taste. These are so, so tasty! But the prep is tedious. Cutting and scooping out 40 cherry tomatoes took a while and I have decent knife skills. Will make the filling again but as a topping or dip.

    I made these to take to a party and they were a hit. I cut a small piece off the bottom of each tomato so they would sit up. I used a 1/8 teaspoon to scoop out the insides. I pulsed the filling in my food processor and used a ziplock bag filled and with the end snipped off to fill the tomatoes. They do take time but worth it. Everyone loved them.

    I love this recipe and have made it several times in a couple of different ways. It's very versatile, easy to make, and can be used as a dip or spread. Typically I'll forego the cherry tomatoes altogether (to save time) and I'll use it as a dip for cucumber slices or carrots. I often double the mayo, parmesan, and green onion, and add about a tsp of garlic powder. I've also added shredded cheese to it as well. Tonight I'm going to a work party and I'm going to try spreading it on a ritz cracker and topping it with a bit of tomato.
