While these are not the height of sophistication nor do they require much culinary prowess, they do include 3 of my favorite things: bacon, mayo and tomatoes. Oh, and Emily’s favorite thing: Wheat Thins. (I didn’t understand how deep that love goes until I caught her eating Mama Dunny’s veggie beef soup with them. Cold, straight out of the container. Classy.)
I’d suggest making these 30 minutes before you plan to serve them at the most because the crackers can get soggy, but for 4 ingredients and a 5-minute prep time, you can’t beat ’em. The picture is of the same type of concoction on a crostini – apparently the Internets don’t know about the Wheat Thin shortcut, so we’re very cutting edge here at Triple N. (Though not cutting edge enough to have an original pic… Coming soon.)
1/4 cup mayo
4 strips of bacon, cooked and chopped
1 box Wheat Thins OR bread cut into 2-inch rounds, toasted
1 container grape tomatoes, halved
Cavender’s & chopped basil (optional)
- Mix mayo and bacon together. (Feel free to use Bacon Bits if you want to do a no-cook version. Grommet-style still tastes good.) Add Cavender’s and basil if you so desire.
- Top Wheat Thins or bread rounds with a teaspoon of the bacon mixture and one half of a grape tomato. Viola. Bites are served.
