Stuffed Cherry Tomatoes

I made these little guys as an appetizer for Sunday dinner, which I will post later this week. They're filled with egg salad which I plan to modify quite a bit, but you can use this as a blank canvas & fill them with anything you'd like. They look so cute, Tristan said "Mommy, are these for dessert?"

For more delicious Tempt My Tummy Tuesdays, please go visit Blessed with Grace.



Slice off the tops of large cherry tomatoes, making sure the other side sits upright. Take a 1/3 teaspoon measurer to scoop out the meat & seeds. Place upside down to drain well. Meanwhile, assemble your favorite mixture. One hour before serving, fill the tomatoes using the same 1/3 tsp measurer & garnish with (2) fresh chives, 2 inches long. Use the thinnest end of the chives for your garnish.

For my filling, I mixed 4 hard boiled eggs with a little mayo, dijon mustard, chopped fresh chives & a bit of curry powder. I wasn't a fan enough to pass on this version to you so find what you like & get to stuffin'. I bet chicken salad would be nice too.

combo - egg salad with cherry tomatoes - yummo!

I don't know about curry powder, but I always like to put cayenne (spelling??) pepper into my egg salad - gives it a kick!

Hey There! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and commenting - It was SO NICE to "meet" you! =-)

Your recipe looks GREAT! Goodness knows I NEED to be doing some dieting. HA!!

Oh, if you took down my sweet potato bread recipe.. I need to share a correction. It needs 2 tsp of CINNAMON! (I don't know HOW I missed that) =-)

Have a GREAT week!

Tabitha Blue said...

Looks totally yummy and cute on top! Adorable little appetizers. I'll have to remember this for my next party.

Angela said...

Oh my, those are adorably cute! If you want a good egg salad recipe, check out the one on my site (I think it's under appetizers, because it was originally a deviled egg recipe, but now I just make egg salad out of it. It's wonderful!)

Jen said...

oh those look so cute. you are just so creative.

~LL~ said...

OK...these look good. i make a different kind (maybe something to post in a future TMTT?)

Anyway....

Thanks for stopping by "As-for-me-and-my-house." Hope to see you again. stop by on Mondays for Making a Happy Home Monday!

Melissa Lester said...

Those are adorable! And the egg salad recipe looks good also. I love egg salad, but I don't like pickles, so a lot of recipes miss the mark for me. I'm always looking for an egg salad recipe that is pickle-free. If you have others that you like better, I hope you will share!

Kristina P. said...

OK, I'm finally here, and boy am I glad I am! These look amazing! What a great idea!

I'm adding you to my Reader. Don't let my anti-Twilight ways fool you. I am actually awesome. ;)

Erin said...

Ok, these look to DIE for! Oh yummy! Thanks for all these recipes! I LOVE your website!!

Marcie said...

I love these!!! The chives in the top are great!

Carrie said...

In college, I "catered" a party for a friend's art show and I made something like this, but they were stuffed with crumbled bacon mixed with mayo and topped with chopped parsley. They were the hit of the party!

Mmmmmm...I might have to make those again soon.

Egg Salad sounds delicious in the tomatoes also!
