Bacon Cream Stuffed Tomato Tulips

While these tomato tulips add a bit of fanciness to any occasion, they only look fancy. In actuality, they are very easy to make and require ingredients that you can find easily in almost any grocery store.

To make them, you need cherry or grape tomatoes, cream cheese, bacon bits, mayonnaise, ranch dressing, green onions and a piping bag.

When you make them, you start by mixing together the cream cheese, bacon bits, mayonnaise, and ranch dressing until it is well combined. You can do this by hand, but I don’t have the arm strength of my seasoned ancestors.

I suggest using your hand mixer to whip them together. Also when whipped the cream mixture is lighter & fluffier, making it infinitely more magical Then, you spoon the mixture into a piping bag.

When the bacon cream filling is in the piping bag, you can set it aside and prepare the tomatoes. Then, just make two cuts on the top of each one in an x shape. The cuts should go halfway down the tomato. Then, you just stick a toothpick in the opposite end of the tomato. With the toothpick in place, you can attach the green onion to the bottom of the tomato as the tulip stem. Lastly, you just pipe the filling into each tomato.

While I'd normally swear that miracle whip is not the same as, or interchangeable with mayo, in this recipe it actually can be substituted. Unless you're familiar with it, and like it though, I'd stick with mayo.
