Prep Time: 30 minutes; plus chilling time
2 pints (4 cups) cherry tomatoes
3/4 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp dried basil leaves
16 oz pkg bacon, crisply cooked, drained and crumbled
Cut the top off each cherry tomato, and using a melon baller or a sharp knife,
carefully scoop out the seeds and pulp. Place each tomato upside down on a
paper towel to drain. Combine the rest of the ingredients in a small bowl. Stuff each cherry tomato with the bacon mixture. Chill in fridge for at least 2 hours to blend flavors.
To serve, line the serving tray with parsley to keep the little tomatoes from rolling around.
