    BLT Poppers

    Ingredients:
    2 dozen cherry tomatoes
    4 oz cream cheese (typically a half package)
    2 Tbsp mayo
    6 slices bacon
    1/2 cup chopped raw spinach (I eyeballed this so could need a bit more or less)
    2 green onions, sliced fairly fine (I used the green middle section of these)
    1 small package croutons (or make your own)

    Directions:
    1. Hollow out cherry tomatoes.

    2. Crisp and chop the bacon (the more the merrier)

    3. Mix all ingredients other than the tomatoes and croutons; stuff mixture into the tomatoes.

    4. Top each popper with a crouton.

    No, I didn't use the tomato innards. My thought was it would make the stuffing too runny. But I hated to waste that, so I might use at least some next time (probably would run it through a strainer to get rid of the seeds, but the pulp and juice would be good to use).

    My primary gripe about recipes like this is they are a lot of work (Hollowing out Cherry Tomatoes?)... granted, taste great... What I want is for you to invite me over to have some...

    The Cherry tomatoes seem to be pretty small to stuff... (do you slice to top off?) I am thinking that you'd need to slice in half...

    I am wondering if Roma Tomatoes might work even better... a bit larger, but not too large... you could slice in half... should have a rich tomato flavor... also the oblong ones from Mexico (in Yellow plastic package) would work, a bit larger and very rich tomato flavor (I buy them in lieu of cherry tomatoes all the time now)...

    So I just got done preparing these babies. I used about 30 cherry tomatoes and cut the fill recipe in half (except for the bacon). It did take forever and was a tedious. They are delicious though. I am using them as a garnish on a vegetable tray. We'll see how the guests enjoy them.
