I am a huge fan of the BLT sandwich because it is so simple, yet so darn good. The combination of flavors works so well, that you enjoy every single bite. These little tomatoes are just like that, only without the toasted bread.

What Makes BLT Stuffed Cherry Tomatoes So Good?

Could any recipe go wrong with bacon as an ingredient? I think not.

Adding bacon to the filling of these cherry tomatoes, along with a few chives and a wee bit of mayonnaise and you are in for a treat.

These little tomato bites pack a huge amount of flavor and are so addictive you can’t stop at just one!

Useful Tools to make these appetizer bites

When your garden is overflowing with beautiful ripe tomatoes and you can’t pick them fast enough, you can eat them right off the vine (one of my favorites) or throw them into a salad, make a fresh bruschetta pasta, or as in this case, scoop ’em out and make a delicious snack.

Some Tools to Make Stuffed Cherry Tomatoes

How to prep cherry tomatoes for stuffing

BLT Bites are a snap to put together. The most time-consuming part is scooping out the pulp. If serving as a fancy appetizer, use a tiny dollop of sour cream on a serving plate to help these little treats stay upright.

  1. Wash and dry cherry tomatoes
  2. Slice off the top and scoop out pulp
  3. Place on a paper towel to dry

  • Toss into cooked & chilled pasta to make a tasty pasta salad.
  • Add 2 Tablespoons of dip mixture as a salad dressing onto a mixed green salad, toss and enjoy!
