This past weekend my friends and I had a Chocobacon Fest.
I will pause now so that you can catch your breath. Yes, you are still alive. No, you have not died and gone to Bacon heaven. Yes, it really was that good.
Our menu included BLT stuffed tomatoes, bacon wrapped shrimp, bacon wrapped dates stuffed with almonds or chocolate, zucchini and squash sautéed in bacon grease, pomegranate sangria (ok, no bacon or chocolate there), maple chocolate pudding with bacon spoons, and chocolate covered brown sugar bacon.
Recipes for pudding and chocolate covered bacon will be posted later this week…once I pick myself up off of the floor from my Chocobacon induced coma.
For now, I offer you ….
BLT Stuffed Tomatoes
Source: Buns In My Oven
about 20 cherry tomatoes
8 ounces sour cream
4 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 t grated parmesan cheese
2 t fresh parsley, chopped
chives, for garnish
salt and pepper to taste
Wash cherry tomatoes and slice them in half. Use a paring knife or spoon to scrape out the insides. Dab the inside of each tomato with a paper towel to dry it and then sprinkle with salt.
Mix together the sour cream, bacon pieces, parmesan, parsley, salt, and pepper. Spoon or pipe the filling into each tomato and sprinkle the tops with chopped green onions.
