Tomato Bacon Cups Recipe

These savory biscuits have a flavorful tomato and bacon filling. “I got the recipe at a friend’s house one Thanksgiving,” Paige English relates from Portland, Oregon. “I’ve made them at special gatherings ever since. They always disappear fast.”
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 10 min./batch YIELD:30 servings


  • 1 small tomato, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup real bacon bits
  • 1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 tube (12 ounces) refrigerated buttermilk biscuits, separated into 10 biscuits


  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the tomato, mayonnaise, bacon, cheese, onion and basil; set aside. Split each biscuit into three layers; press each layer into an ungreased miniature muffin cup.
  • 2. Spoon tomato mixture into cups. Bake at 450° for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm. Yield: 2-1/2 dozen.

"These were good, and certainly easy enough to make. I used the four-pack of Great Value brand biscuits, which are smaller. So I cut each biscuit in half for each muffin. Recipe ended up making 60 mini muffin size - more than I expected. Next time, I will spray the mini-muffin pan - the first batch were very hard to get out, due to the mayo running over and going between the pan and dough, and then sort of burning them together, despite it being a non-stick pan. Once I got them out, the biscuits themselves weren't actually burnt. The 2nd and 3rd batch were fine because by then the biscuits had released enough of the oil contained in them to grease the pan. These were good, but no matter what brand of canned biscuit you use, they ALL have that weird aftertaste. Using canned biscuits is a quick and easy way to make them, but I think in the future if I am making them to take somewhere (which is what I did yesterday), I will make my own buttermilk biscuit dough from scratch - not like it takes that long to mix the dough - rolling won't be necessary, just pinch off a piece and flatten by hand to put into muffin cup."

"A friend made these for a shower at my home. They were delicious! We all thought she spent hours preparing them. When she told us how simple they were, we wouldn't let her leave without a promise of the recipe. They disappeared quickly. This will be my standard when I am asked to bring an appetizer to the next party."

"This is a very good recipe. I have experimented with it and now I use crescent roll dough for the base. It seems to be simpler to make that way. I follow the rest of the recipe exactly and they always turn out."

"These are soooooo good!!! I used the 16.5 oz. can of biscuits and split them in half and used regular sized muffin cups. I ended up with an extra biscuit or two so I just split them up evenly among the cups. Everyone loved them!! Yummy and so easy!!"
