  • 1 pound bacon or 1 package turkey bacon (see note)
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onions
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 24 cherry tomatoes


  • Place tomatoes stem side down and cut a thin slice off of the top. With a small spoon, scoop out the pulp. Invert tomatoes on paper towels 30 minutes to drain.
  • Cut bacon into pieces (~1/4 inch) and fry until crisp. If using turkey bacon, cook the strips of bacon and then cut or crumble afterwards. Let cool.
  • In a bowl, mix bacon, green onions, and mayo.
  • Fill tomatoes with bacon mixture. Refrigerate several hours or overnight.


I use thick-cut bacon because Bob prefers it.  For turkey bacon, I recommend Oscar Mayer brand.
