I love the idea behind these. I also appreciate the comments and ideas expressed by others. Roma tomatoes are definitely the way to go for me. Using cherry tomatoes (unless I can find extra-large ones) just seems a bit too fiddly for my tastes (and patience). I can see whipping up a plate of these for snacking while watching TV or entertaining friends. I'd definitely use real crumbled bacon for this. I also came across some shredded Smoky Bacon Cheddar from Kraft that I think would work wonderfully.

These sound like tasty bites but a bit of work for tiny cherry tomatoes. I think I will use Roma tomatoes and also add crab meat. I like looking at the other reviewers' ideas. It helps me to be a better cook. These will be like little blt's and little crab meat blt's.

I use a roma tomato and cut it in half. Makes it easier to fill but still small enough to pass as bite size.

I would cut the tomatoes in half lengthwise. Then the seeds wouldn't be so hard to remove and they wouldn't roll over. The suggestions of cream cheese and real bacon would make this very good.

Thanks for the tip! I thought these would be wonderful for my Memorial Day picnic at my house but then I thought how long it would take to make enough. If I cut them lengthwise that'll cut down on the prep time considerably. And I have other things that I have streamlined so this would be the only thing that's really time consuming but it looks like it's worth it. I don't entertain as much as I used to so the Memorial Day picnic is a big one for me and I want it to be nice for everybody and have a lot of food and a lot of choices.

These are incredible! They do take a little bit of time, but the results are SOOO worth it. Try these, you won't be sorry.

Made this , but added drained & chopped smoked oysters or a pouch of smoked tuna. Really good no matter what.

A little time consuming, but well worth it. YUM

I have made this a couple of times using 2 parts whipped cream cheese and 1 part mayo. Everyone just loves them. It just takes quite a while to get the tomatoes ready when making them for a group.

Where's the lettuce?

We use green onion instead of lettuce, keeps the same green color but just adds a little more flavor than lettuce would.

Made this with cream cheese and crab, excellent! ! ! !

I bet this would be good if you substitute cream cheese for the mayo

First time I looked a the recipe the bacon bits didn't show up, therefore disregard my first comment.

How can it be BLT if there is NO bacon in the receipe?????

This was horrible! Something seriously wrong with the recipe. Way to much filling, especially mayonaise!!!

Miracle Whip and real bacon make it so much better.

I grow a huge tomato garden every year, I'm always looking for new tomato recipes. This one look good and fun.

I've been making a variation on this for YEARS! One package low salt/no sugar bacon, baked at 350 for 20 minutes rather than bacon bits; reduce mayo to 1/2 cup; 3 Tbsp parmesan cheese rather than cheddar; add 1/2 cup minced parsley (makes it really green!). This will fill one package of cherry tomatoes. Easiest way to scoop out tomato seeds in cherry tomatoes is to use the 1/4 tsp measure of a metal measuring spoon set. Momala

Reduce mayo to 1/2 cup, add 1/4 cup of sour cream, if desired.

If you are making a lot of these, put the filling in a ziplock bag and cut off the corner. You can then squeeze filling into the tomatoes, much neater and faster than spooning the filling in.

Someone got this recipe from this site, and made these at a recent family reunion I attended; and they were delicious! Thus, I'm on here getting the recipe to make myself.

rather than throw out the seeds, mix them into the filling.

sour cream sounds good too as a substitute for the mayo.

love tomatos love this recipe sounds good with cream cheese thanks jordysmom

Good idea. Thanks

Sound good ...cant wait for my cherry tomatoes to turn red

These are delicious! I have also made them with cream cheese instead of mayo, and loved them, as well!

I really can't say, as there was once again no recipe, or information at all on the subject in question?
