Introduction: Mini Inside Out BLT

Picture of Mini Inside Out BLT
This summer our tomato crop failed to produce because of the heat. My husband brought me three beautiful small tomato's from our garden today. Oh, they were so sweet! I decided to make some inside out BLT's. These adorable BLT's would be great to pack for a school lunch instead of sandwiches. I loved the way they turned out. 

Step 1: Ingredients

Picture of Ingredients
I had three tiny tomatoes so I did not need very many ingredients to make a batch. This would be a great recipe for those tiny leftovers. 

Crispy bacon 
Small tomato with green stem
Miracle Whip (I was out of mayo, it would be better.)
Parsley optional
Salt and pepper. ( I did not feel it needed any more salt with the bacon so salty anyway. )
Additional items:
Tooth pick
Tiny star cookie cutter
Basic kitchen tools


Step 2: Dice

Step 3: Slice

Picture of Slice
Slice the top of the tomato as shown.
Slice a small sliver off the bottom so the tomato will stand alone.
Slice a circle around the center of the tomato as shown.
Scoop out the inside slightly so there will be enough room for the filling.

Step 4: Toast

Step 5: Mix

Mix lettuce, bacon, and Miracle Whip. You just need a tiny bit of the dressing. 
Season to taste. 
Scoop a little bacon mixture into the tomato.
Add star using the tooth pick.
Top with tomato stem.
Garnish with parsley and small star. 

Step 6: Sunshiine's Final Thoughts

I asked my husband what he thought of the stuffed tomato's and he said he could eat them twice a week that they were very good. I loved them! Who passes up bacon and tomato's?
