BLT Bites

(originally made  2/4/2008)

Had the inlaws here to watch the game last night.  I made some old family favorites (Herbed Beef Stew, Baked Ziti) and was looking for something for finger food.   These were good.  I shortcutted and bought Real Bacon bits (said 50% reduced fat on the bag).   I didn't get as many tomatoes out of the recipe, mine were gigantic though they were marked cherry.   Will definitely make this recipe again, but will take the time to make my own turkey bacon because the bits were a little salty.
