"This was delicious!! I wasn't sure how keen my kids would be on the lox separate from the cream cheese, so I combined the cream cheese with the lox/peppers/onion mix and then just filled the tomatoes with the result. I then topped with dill and voila! Everyone loved them, including my chef father-in-law. I had leftover filling, so I mixed in dill and refrigerated it overnight for bagels. Yum!"

"I think this takes longer than 25 minutes if you're working alone. I would plan for at least an hour. They were a great hit though and taste great! Very creative."
