Bacon-wrapped Cherry Tomatoes Recipe

Bacon pictures (4 of 11)

I am writing this from Beijing (yes, Beijing again!). The local time is 10:30 AM and the sky is grey and very overcast (or is it pollution?).

Back in the United States, summer is in full bloom now. The sun is scorching hot, all flowers blossom, young senoritas are strutting their stuff in short shorts, but most evidently, everywhere you turn to, there is a party going on–be in on the beach, at the parks, inside or outside the house, or at the club house. Summer is always fun in the United States.

Since this is the first summer Rasa Malaysia celebrates, I thought I would share some of my favorite summer recipes with you…

Have you ever served grilled cherry tomatoes with bacon at your parties? If not, do try this out. It’s real simple to make but the end results are delicious, pretty, and a total crowd-pleaser for your parties all summer long. I first had them in Tokyo a few years ago and now am hopelessly hooked. This is also a must-have item for me whenever I have Japanese yakitori

I am not going to write a lengthy post so I will let the pictures speak the words for me. Click the above to view the complete gallery.

    Ooo yum. That’s a lovely combination of flavours. The French do a similar entree – prunes with bacon wrapped around each prune, then grilled! Yum!

  2. Oh for the love of food!

    hmmmm… in Beijing AGAIN are we? Is L_v_ in the air, gurl? Ha!Ha!
    Precious looking hors d’oeuvres RM.

    Probably the best example of “less is more” photography I’ve seen this year. I’m always praising Haalo for this sort of thing, but you really hit the peak with these shots.

    steamy tells me that you have secret “pill” for youth. Are these cherry bacon tomatoes part of the secret?!

    Cough it up! ;)

    actually, it is shichi-mi gotarashi.
    7 (seven) can be pronounced nana or shichi. that is where the confusion starts

    i’ve been a fan of these ever since going to shensengumi in fountain valley. made some tonite on the grill. yummy!

    Do they still explode when you bite them? Looks extremely delicious! (definitely pollution in beijing, ya)
