Bacon Stuffed Tomatoes

What better way to eat vegetables than by adding bacon and lots of it? To partner up with a garlic beef tenderloin I was making for supper, made some Stuffed Tomatoes. What follows is not only a combination of several recipes and my own preferences but also a very pleasing side dish or appetizer.

Bacon Stuffed Tomatoes 

  • 12 Campari Tomatoes (they are slightly larger than cherry tomatoes and easier to gut)
  • 1 cup of Hellman’s Olive Oil Mayo
  • 5 green onions, diced
  • 1-2 teaspoons of garlic (add more if you want)
  • 1/3 cup of goat gouda cheese (add more if you want)
  • 8 slices of bacon, cook and crumbled (add more if you want)
  • Dash of salt and pepper

Wash tomatoes, and with your tomato shark ( if you are like me and don’t have one ~ use a paring knife) remove seeds and excess juice. Combine the all the above ingredients and gently insert into the tomato. Chill for an hour before serving. Eat and enjoy!

SIDE NOTE: Sorry for the standard tomato shot, but my daughter tripped while holding the one and only camera we own. We just got our replacement in the mail yesterday, so post photos will soon start being my own.

The importance of meal planning


I think one of the biggest reasons why I have failed in the past is due to lack of planning. What better excuse to bypass homemade meals than lack of time?  I want to set myself up for success, not failure, and will begin learning the ins and outs of meal planning.  I have done this before and never stuck with it (do you see a reoccurring theme?) but taking into account my family’s tight budget and my drive to get healthy and lose weight, this time there are no other options. I need to stick to a meal plan.
