Bacon and Lettuce Stuffed Cherry Tomatoes

This is an easy, simple recipe that goes over well. You can make the filling ahead and scoop out the tomatoes well ahead of time but do not fill the tomatoes until just before serving. I like to add the lettuce to the filling just before filling the tomato however the original recipe said you can mix it in when you combine all the stuffing ingredients. Looks great on a buffet table

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut the top off the tomatoes, scoop out the seeds& pulp. Use the seeds & puld in some other recipe.
  2. Salt the inside of the tomato and put them upside down on a paper towel to drain for about15 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile combine the bacon, chives, lettuce and Mayo, season with salt and pepper (remember that you have already salted the inside of the tomatoes).
  4. Fill the tomatoes just before serving.

These were rich rich rich and delicious! All of the veggies came from our garden, as daughter was looking for recipes for all of our "sugar snack" cherry tomatoes. Thanks for a very different "spin" on enjoying them!
