BLT Bites

I love love love when darling daughter is interested in cooking with me!
She is a teen and waaaaay too cool to hang out with Mom most of the time, so this brings us a little closer.

I had gathered a TON of new recipes I wanted to try. She went thru them and chose this to make for Thanksgiving.
Imagine my giddy excitement for DAYS waiting to make these with my girl!
Imagine my surprise when it was my mother and I making these instead of daughter and I, (Well, at least we still had the mother/daughter theme going)

Before you think she ditched me, she was busy helping me with a ton of other pre-Thanksgiving prep, and it just worked better for my mom to do a lot of this one.

Maybe I can entice her with another recipe at another time...OR...we can always make these again!

I brought them to Thanksgiving and they went FAST. People loved them! The flavor is just a big burst in your mouth. Everyone said we need to make them again, so I see them being made in my mini kitchen again.

16 Large cherry tomatoes
½ Lb smoked bacon (Cooked and crumbled)
½ Cup mayonnaise
⅓ Cup minced green onions
2 Tablespoons minced romaine lettuce

1. Cut a thin slice off the top of the tomato and remove all pulp
2. Mix remaining ingredients
3. Spoon mixture into tomatoes
4. Refrigerate covered for at least one hour


Since I did not manage to plan ahead, we are looking at a whole bunch of tomatoes in a red dish. :::sigh:::

The original recipe came from the Country Cook


  1. These sound really good. Thanks for sharing at C&C with J&J!

  2. Warning bite sized yumminess in the building ;-) That does sound so delicious Jay and definitely worth making again with your daughter
