Tomato Delight

I DON'T remember where I found this recipe, but I have used it for many years. This is the first recipe I reach for when fresh tomatoes are in season. It goes great with a sandwich or makes a bright addition to a main course. -Cora Miller, Lewiston, Michigan

    Outstanding indeed. I added a small piece of toasted and buttered Rye bread round as a base for the broiled tomato. It caught all of the nice tomato and bacon juices from the tomato as it broiled. I used Garlic powder instead of garlic salt and I added that along with some freshly cracked black pepper into the Mayonnaise. I also used fresh Oregano. I served it as an appetizer but it would also be fabulous serve for lunch.Taste of Home Volunteer Field Editor

    This was very good and a quick side dish to throw together when the tomatoes are plentiful from the garden. I used real bacon bits instead of the bacon to save time.

    We grew our own tomotoes last year so this recipe was made quite often. It is wonderful. If I am in a hurry, I sprinkle real bacon bits on them instead of cooking the bacon....YUMMY...

    Yum! I was apprehensive about using the mayo, but I did and it added a great flavor, I usual don't like mayo. I will make Tomato Delight many more times.
