What amazingness are we talking about? Still have cherry tomatoes in the garden – Yep bacon wrapped cherry tomatoes is a thing…
Ok, so I admit, I have been off the keto wagon for a while during the summer and my pants are a bit tight… so fall is here and it’s time to do something about it. You know me, I wont sacrifice taste for pretty much anything so this recipe is keto and has bacon. What else do you need? Here follows the super easy, always tasty bacon wrapped tomato recipe.
Here is the short list of what you will need for this super easy recipe
cherry tomatoes (one small container)
olive oil (I like using chipotle flavoured – gives it a zip! or tuscan herb flavoured but you can use plain) – around 1 TBSP _ I love buying my flavoured oil near the cottage at Southampton Olive Oil Company – you can order it online if you like too!
6 slices uncooked bacon
basil (fresh or dried) – around a teaspoon – chop fresh up very small if using fresh stuff
salt and pepper to taste
Super easy directions for bacon wrapped cherry tomatoes
Preheat oven to 375 F, prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil. Mix oil and seasonings in a bowl and toss tomatoes in it. Cut bacon in half lengthwise and then in thirds and wrap each tomato in a bacon securing with a toothpick.
Bake until the bacon is crisp (about 25 mins)
Admittedly this recipe for bacon wrapped cherry tomatoes is a bit fiddly… I mean the title of the recipe does imply that doesn’t it? But super tasty and keto friendly and would work great as an appetizer at a party.
