I’m coming at you with my last post for #baconmonth! These Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Grilled Tomatoes are the perfect way to finish out summer and those fresh garden tomatoes. I have so much to tell you about these tomatoes, but to be honest, I don’t have much writing in me today. Within a half an hour of making these beautiful bacon wrapped cheesy jewels of deliciousness I was in the car on my way to the hospital. I dropped a glass table top on my toe while trying to assemble an outdoor table. Toe is broken, plus many more graphic details that I will spare you from on a recipe post.
Let’s just say, I’m moderately medicated and only moderately competent enough to be writing this. ha! I did make the recipe when I was completely competent and they were really delicious, so at least there’s that!
Creamy, fresh mozzarella is stuffed into beautifully sweet garden tomatoes and wrapped in BACON! These morsels are then grilled until the cheese is melty, the tomatoes are about to burst, and the bacon is perfectly crisp. Top all of that goodness with some fresh basil and balsamic reduction and you have an outstanding appetizer. Serve with some crusty bread and you’ve got a meal!
PRO-TIPS: both fresh mozzarella and tomatoes are infamously juicy. To prevent turning your stuffed tomatoes into mushy messes, cut a small piece off of the bottom of the tomato. This will help your tomato stand up straight without rolling around and also allow just enough drainage to keep things from getting too wet inside.
