Bacon-Stuffed Cherry Tomatoes
CarbsPerServing:18 total recipe
1 pound bacon
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup green onions
1 pint cherry tomato
How to Prepare:
Cook bacon until very crisp. Crumble up bacon and mix with mayonnaise (add more if you need it) and green onions. Cut off top and scoop out inside of cherry tomatos. (Trick to make tomatos stand still cut a small sliver off the bottom). Fill with bacon mixture. Better when they sit a while so the flavors meld and they taste like a little BLT without the L! The carb count for a cherry tomato is .8 per tomato with .2 fiber, but you are scooping out the guts so it should be less. So under 1 carb per treat. I used to serve them for parties and never had any left. Enjoy.
I make this too but instead of mayonnaise, I use a package of cream cheese. I cut the tomatoes in half, scoop out the insides, sprinkle them with salt and pepper and let them drain cut side down on papertowels. You have to whip the cream cheese until light & fluffy (use a bit of heavy cream to thin out the mixture) and then mix in the onion and bacon. I use a pastry bag to fill the cups to give a nice finishing touch. If you use a bag, then you have to make sure the onion and bacon are chopped fine so they can pass through the pastry tip. Or, you can fill them with a teaspoon.
