Cherry tomatoes stuffed with blue cheese and bacon
SmartPoints® value per serving
If you’re looking for an appetizer your guests will adore, then look no-further than this four ingredient hors d’oeuvre. Because cherry tomatoes are among the few supermarket produce items that have a consistent flavor and quality across every season, you can serve it year round. The tomatoes should be able to stand upright. If not, cut a thin slice of tomato off at the stem-end, so there is a flat surface for them to stand on. If blue cheese is too strong for your taste, try feta instead. Baby basil leaves or chopped green onions make good substitutes for the chives.
