These are so yummy. They taste just like a BLT sandwich without the bread. I made these for thanksgiving and they disappeared in less than 10 minutes! They are so yummy and they look great for entertaining!

I made this today to use up several cherry tomatoes. To make it easier on my self I used my paring knife to cut around the inside of the tomato and giving it a little squeeze. The inside came out quickly. Very tasty! I think next time I migh use 1/4 cup mayo + 1/4 cup garden vegetable cream cheese. Thanks Sarah! I will make this again!

Well, I went to the store for all of the ingredients and came home with grape tomatoes instead of cherry tomatoes. Whoops. What to do? I threw the tomatoes in a big bowl, doubled the recipe and tossed everything together. Voila!! BLT salad. And let me tell you......the bowl was empty at the end of the BBQ and the recipe requests are still coming in via email. I am making it again for my son's birthday this weekend. Thank you!

These are very tasty!!! Truly, just like a BLT! The only change I made was to use Asiago cheese in place of the Parmesan. For me, it seemed like a TON of work though....BUT I ended up simplifying the process for my second batch of tomatoes (I made a double recipe to take to a gathering later today). Rather than cutting the tops off of the tomatoes and digging out the centers then struggling to get them 'stuffed', I simply cut each tomato in two (much like you would do for deviled eggs) to create two little 'bowls' from each tomato. It was much easier to remove the seeds and spoon in the filling....and I felt like I got more bang for my it sort of 'doubled' the number of appetizers! Presentation did not seem impaired by the change either. Made for ZINGO round of ZWT5. With the revision in technique, this one makes my permanent appetizer/gathering rotation! Thanks for posting!!
