    Made these for a party -- or I should say my 14-year-old volunteered to, who did an awesome job despite the tediousness of scooping out and filling lots of tiny tomatoes -- and they were delicious. Used real mayo as per most reviewers' suggestions, but because we're pescatarians and I couldn't find Bacos or a similar bacon substitute in time I grabbed some calamata olives and they turned out to be a great alternative. I've now ordered a package of "wannabe" bacon bits so I can do a comparison at some point, but for others who either don't eat or don't like bacon, try olives! Got rave reviews at the party.

    I've made these twice now and both times with real mayo and cocktail tomatoes because I could not find cherry tomatoes and there hasn't been any leftovers either time! I gave the recipe to my sister and she took them to a party and a man with a vegan wife was eating them telling her not to tell his wife they were that good!The only adjustments I have made is to add some ground black pepper to the mayo mixture, and it really makes it pop.

    a little bit picky cleaning out the tomatoes, but everyone loved these so it was worth it.

    I have made this recipe using fat free, lite and regular mayo. It tastes best using real and that's what I use when I take it to a party. I use either lite or fat free for home. I have found that using a 1/4 tsp measure works very well for scooping the insides out of the cherry tomatoes.

    I've made these a few times. There wonderful and tasty. Will continue making them even if there a pain to prep. They taste just like a BLT sandwhich only healthier.

    Make them all the time! Hubby approves and that's huge, beings he's the pickiest eater I know. But we make them in bigger tomatoes, and use them as a side dish instead.
