Tomato Basil Cups Recipe

Cook Time: 30 minutes  Difficulty: Easy  Yield:  30 servings

I love easy peasy recipes!  A friend gave me this recipe a few years ago but I had forgotten how addicting these mini morsels were...cheese, bacon, tomatoes, basil, oh my!  (I know, not exactly healthy, but at least they're mini bites;).  In fact, I served these cuties this past weekend for our family birthday celebration and THEY WERE DEVOURED!  You would think I didn't feed my family by how quickly they disappeared!

I tweaked this recipe slightly from the original recipe substituting our new seasoning blend, Basil Pizzazz, and tomatoes right from our garden. You can certainly use your favorite biscuit recipe, but I chose to use refrigerated biscuits from the grocery store:)

This is one mouth-watering appetizer you absolutely need to have in your recipe cache, but make sure you grab a few for yourself, because they will vanish before your eyes!`  Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 1 package bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 2 tomatoes, finely chopped
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 6 oz. shredded swiss cheese
  • 1 cup light mayonnaise
  • 1 Tablespoon (Tbsp) Cherchies® Basil Pizzazz
  • 2 (16 oz. cans) reduced fat refrigerated biscuits
  • cooking spray
  • mini muffin pans

Preparation

Cook bacon in oven at 400 degrees  until bacon is cooked.  Drain bacon on a paper towel lined plate and crumble when cooled.  Add crumbled bacon to a medium bowl and add the tomatoes, onions, swiss cheese mayonnaise, and Cherchies® Basil Pizzazz.  Mix together.

Slightly grease mini muffin tins with cooking spray.  Cut each biscuit into fourths (in half and half again) and place in muffin tins.  Mold the dough to make little cups in the muffin tins.  Place enough tomato mixture into the tins to create a little mound of filling.

Sprinkle tomato cups with a little more Basil Pizzazz.  Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until cups are golden brown.  Tangy, salty, savory Tomato Basil Cups, the perfect easy appetizer or snack!  Enjoy!
