Tomato Cups

It's a good
thing my
wife and
son's love
so much !

My mom sent me an Email containing the column that my cousin writes for our local paper. It included a recipe for tomato cups this week. My wife makes these, but with a slight variation. Here is the recipe she printed this week
Tomato & Ham Cups
1 small tomato, finely chopped 1/2 cup mayonnaise 1/2 cup finely shredded ham, layered type 1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese 1 small onion, finely chopped 1 tsp. dried basil 1 tube (12 ozs.) refrigerated buttermilk biscuits,
In a small bowl, combine all ingredients, except the biscuits; set aside. Split each separated biscuit into three layers; press each layer into an ungreased miniature muffin cup. Note, you will have 6 left over, unless you put them into another pan. Spoon tomato mixture into cups and bake at 450 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm, if possible, but we had them after they had cooled and they were lip-smacking good.

My wife's variation to the recipe is 8 to 10 strips of cooked bacon instead of the ham

I looked around the web to see if we were the only people in the world that had made these, and I found about 8 separate versions, but all the same idea. Give these a try, we are making some tonight.

Looks delicious! I am a fan of the tomato in any form.
