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!
Simply delicious. The perfect finger food. I know what to do with my cherry tomatoes when the garden is full of them from now on. I made the mixture up in a quart size baggie, snipped off a corner, and filled the tomatoes without too big of a mess. Made for the Saucy Senoritas of ZWT5.
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 buck...as 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!!
real good. made it for thanksgiving and it was first to go. also 15 year old son helped make then and ate half before they got to the tray.
FANTASTIC! I made these for our game day party and we loved them. I cut them in half and that worked well for us. I wanted to use up some of the many cherry tomatoes we had in our garden and this was a perfect recipe. Thank you so much for sharing with us.
tasty little bites!
Very different appetizer! I loved it. I could eat the filling by the spoonfuls! Delicious! I will say that I used grape tomatoes and cleaning them out took me a while, but if you have the time, it's worth it. I used a pastry bag to fill them and there was no mess - just make sure you grind everything up really well in a food processor!
I made this today but instead of using cherry tomatoes I used Roma tomatoes. I tripled the mixture and kept everything the same except that I cut the tomatoes in halves then cleaned them out. Also I skinned one side of the tomato so that they would stay level when I was transporting them to the party. So far everyone is raving about them, and they keep saying that they are really filling. I will use this at all the dinner parties.
I made these for an early Thanksgiving/Birthday party and even people who dont usually like tomatoes loved these. I got them a bit messy stuffing them but they were light and yummy. I may even try them with some light ranch instead of mayo next time. I would make them again and I am having to pass the recipe because it was so good. Thanks!!!
