Tomato Cups



Surprise, I'm posting a recipe that is not a sweet. These savory little treats are good for parties and get-togethers. They are also super easy to make.

Tomato Cups

1 can large refrigerated biscuits
½ c. mayonnaise
1 c. shredded cheese (mozzarella,cheddar or a blending of both)
1 10 oz. Can Rotel tomatoes, drained
1 teaspoon dried or fresh basil
½ onion, chopped
10 pieces bacon, cooked and crumbled

Preheat oven to 350 and lightly grease a mini muffin tin.
Separate each biscuit into quarters.
Press a biscuit quarter into each cup (I use a floured mini tart shaper to help form the cups).
Mix remaining ingredients in a medium sized bowl.
Spoon filling in the biscuit cups about halfway full.
Bake 15 to 20 minutes until golden brown.

  6. Sounds great! I love anything with bacon and tomatoes! Have you ever used the "filling" in a puff pastry? Since you have a pestle, I ask -- that's what I also use when making appetizers in muffin tins.

  7. Cameron and Lisa, actually it is not a pestle but a mini tart shaper. I couldn't think of what it was called but remember that it came from the Pampered Chef and I located it on their website. I haven't used the filling in a puff pastry but I'm sure it would be fine.

  8. Monica, Rotel tomatoes must be a Southern thing. Take a look at their website at http://www.ro-tel.com/index.jsp

  18. Oh my word! I was doing really good on my diet today until you made my salivary glands just go haywire. I've got that little muffin pan too. That little muffin pan is sinful-- as you can do a lot with dough and ingredients in those bite size morsels.
