Mmm..bacon. And tomato. and other good stuff.

Momma G called these "mini open-faced sandwiches". I thought that was kind of cute, because she was basically right.

JEGs and I made these appetizers for a party we went to, and within the hour they were g.o.n.e. They are super easy, and you can stuff anything inside these pastries- the possibilities are endless!

Food not actually blurry.
Unless you've been drinking. In which case, you probably shouldn't be baking. Leave that to the sober folks.

Tomato Bacon Cups (yields 2 1/2 dozen)
1 small tomato, finely chopped
1/2 cup mayo
1/2 cup bacon bits
1/2 cup shredded Swiss Cheese
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 teaspon dried basil
1 tube (12 ounces) refrigerated buttermilk biscuits, separated into 10 biscuits.

In a small bowl, combine the tomato, mayo, bacon, cheese, onion and basil. Set aside.

Split each biscuit into three layers; press each layer into an ungreased miniature muffin cup.

Spoon tomato mixture into cups.

Bake at 450 for 8-10 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve warm.

Always & Forever,

Hellllooo, bacon! Delish, and I'm totally snagging this idea from you for the next party.

By the way, I tried to comment a few weeks ago about Layla, but I was reading on an iPad...which may as well be a foreign device in my mind. Every time I tried to comment it nearly I am late. But, I just wanted to say that if I could mail a hug, I would. I was crying while reading on a layover in God-knows-where. She was such a sweetie, and I am certain you and JEGS made her last few days everything a small kitten could desire. :) I'm sure your heart is still a little soft and achy for that sweet looks like Layla was one of a kind. But, you made the right decision. :) And maybe someday, another snugggly furball will come crawling into your life again :)

Much love, and hope your heart is healing. :)

Biscuits make this girl happy. And miniature food too. Hell, even comically large food makes me happy. Either way, bring these to my house.

and tangent, how do you feel about Eddie Ross?
