These BLT Bites are tomatoes stuffed with bacon, lettuce in a creamy filling. It tastes just like your favorite BLT in a delicious, low carb appetizer! The flavor of these Low Carb BLT Bites are really amazing. Such a great new idea for party food. I just love them. The only difficulty I had was getting them all to stay upright and not fall over. I found that if I used a smaller plate, it helped to balance them. I was afraid to cut anything off the bottom of the tomatoes in fear of the filling seeping through the end. But if you use a large enough tomato, you may be able to do that. And the bonus? These are a great appetizer for those of you who prefer to eat low carb! You could maybe even make this into a BLT dip. Instead of stuffing the tomatoes. Try dicing the tomatoes and add them straight into the mixture and serve with your favorite cracker. Also, these are not an appetizer that can be made the evening before. But, I think you could make the filling a day ahead of time. Just be sure that you put the filling in an airtight container with locking lid. This is a great dish to make with a friend! This recipe makes 16. You may want to grab an extra pair of hands to make these and double or even triple the recipe. I think I ate about 8 of these all by myself.

DIRECTIONS

01 Step

02 Step

Drain the tomatoes, cut side down, on paper towels for 10 minutes.

03 Step

Combine the remaining ingredients in a small bowl.

04 Step

Stir gently to mix well.

05 Step

Spoon this mixture into the tomatoes.

06 Step

CHEF'S NOTES

Be sure to get the larger size cherry tomatoes or you'll have a very difficult time stuffing these. They are sometimes called cocktail tomatoes. Also, I think regular ole iceberg lettuce would work fine in this recipe. This recipe can easily be doubled.Refrigerate, covered, for at least one hour, but not overnight. Also, these are not an appetizer that can be made the evening before.
