Today is my Father-in-Law's birthday! I wanted to make something fun to bring to brunch, and after seeing Susie's creation over at We Are Not Martha, I knew exactly what I would make. BLT Stuffed Tomatoes!
I went with the Rachel Ray recipe- and while it said it was only 30 minutes to prepare, it took me about an hour and a half. But that is also factoring my hangover from the champagne I consumed at Kelly's wedding last night as well.
After placing pieces of lettuce in each of the tomatoes, you mix the pepper and mayo and throw it in a sandwich bag, and cut the corner so it squirts out like you're icing a birthday cake. Its almost like a birthday cake for guys (since you have mayo and bacon all in one!)
Things I learned:
- These do not travel too well! After the car ride, about every single one of them fell over and I had to stuff them back in. I still managed to look classy doing this in front of the relatives though.
- I'd experiment with either Blue Cheese or Cream Cheese next time!
- Bacon makes everything better.
