Anyone who knows me, knows I love to cook and grow my own herbs, fruit & vegetables.  I recently made these adorable, great tasting "mini blts" for a summertime get-together.  I had so many requests for the recipe, I thought I'd share it with you here so you can share it with your family & friends!

MINI BLT's

INGREDIENTS NEEDED:

About a 1/2 lb Bacon         Pint of Cherry Tomatoes      2 or 3 Green Onions, Cleaned   Fresh Parsley

1/2 C. Mayonnaise            Salt to Taste

 1. In a large skillet, cook about 8 slices of your favorite bacon. (I use the thick,maple-smoked slab bacon)  Cook until crisp.  Drain on paper towel & let cool.

Meanwhile...

Take about a pint of fresh, clean, cherry tomatoes; cut a tiny piece off the bottom so it will have a flat surface to sit up on the serving plate then cut the top off the cherry tomato. Use a small scoop or spoon and scrape the seeds and pulp.  Place the prepared tomatoes upside down on a paper towel to drain out any excess tomato juice while working on cleaning the rest of the tomatoes.

In a small bowl, combine bacon, green onions, mayonnaise, and salt to taste.  Stir until well mixed.  Using a small spoon, fill the hollowed cavity of each cherry tomatoes.  Garnish each tomatoe with a piece of parsley.  Chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours or overnight.

Enjoy!
