Ultra Low Carb Goodness

Oh a party, a great reason to create something quick, easy, tasty, and beautiful!  Just recently, we had a very special friend to surprise for a birthday celebration (who just happens to LOVE BACON), so we brainstormed and came up with this mini BLT ultra low carb concoction.

This is a deliciously tasty ultra low carb way to satisfy any bacon-lovers appetite and it only takes a few minutes of prep. We even made an extra batch to feed our young kids and they adored them; thought they were bacon candy. If you have kids, this may be a keeper for parties and get togethers, for they are quit attractive. Here is how to do it.

Ingredients:

  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Bacon
  • Greens (we used our garden greens, but even just regular lettuce would work just fine)
  • toothpicks

 

Directions: 

Cook bacon so that it is pliable enough to stick a toothpick through.

Chop tomatoes in half and greens should be 2-4 inches.
