October 23rd, 2008

So I was trying to think of a appetizer to make for my best friends Halloween party.... I think this one will do. It says it's more of a summer recipe, but I'm italian (as is my best friend) and there is always a great time to serve tomatoes!! LOL... What's funny is that my boyfriend hates tomatoes....HATES THEM! He won't even try anything with an uncooked tomato. He's also half chinese and hates tea...... that one's a head scratcher huh?

Ok onto the recipe:

Bacon Stuffed Cherry Tomato Poppers

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients:
2 pints cherry tomatoes
3/4 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese (NOT packaged)
1/8 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon dried basil leaves
16-oz. pkg. bacon, crisply cooked, drained, and crumbled

Preparation:

Cut the top off each cherry tomato, and using a melon baller or a sharp knife, carefully scoop out the seeds and pulp. Place each tomato upside down on paper towel to drain.
Combine the rest of the ingredients in a small bowl. Stuff each cherry tomato with the bacon mixture. Chill in fridge for at least 2 hours to blend flavors.
