Cheese Stuffed Tomato Bites


 
I was quite proud of these Cheese Stuffed Tomato Bites – rather more pretty food than I often manage that also tasted good.
You just cut the top off some cherry tomatoes – but don't throw it away – you pop it back on as a sort of hat once you have stuffed the tomatoes.

You have to take the pulp out of the tomatoes – which is a bit fiddly – I mostly used a small teaspoon and my fingers.
The stuffing was a mix of:

Soft cheese – this time herb/garlic cheese
Crème fraiche
Mayonnaise
Salt and white pepper
Some onion powder and dried chives
A teensy tiny touch of cayenne pepper. 

These would be a good finger food for a party.

  1. They look lovely. Kind of makes me wish I enjoyed eating raw tomatoes, but alas popping a cherry tomato in my mouth (even one filled with cheese) just isn't my "thing".

    1. Thank you for linking. I've been thinking about this since you posted. I may have to buy tomatoes b/c waiting for my garden will take too long!
