Bacon-wrapped Cherry Tomatoes Recipe

Cherry Tomato
Cherry Tomato pictures (2 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.

    I can already taste the savory bacon with the sweet tomatoes :)
    (It IS pollution in BJ)

  12. WokandSpoon says:

    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!

  13. bayi says:

    For bacon lovers like me, this is a “healthier” indulgence! :) I like it!

    Precious looking hors d’oeuvres RM.

  17. Trig says:

    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.

  18. singleguychef says:


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

    Cough it up! ;)

  19. Nate 2.0 says:

    I am so going to do this when our cherry tomatoes start coming in! Thanks for the idea.

  20. Terri @ hungerhunger says:

    everytime i want to look at some awe-inspiring pics, i come here!

  21. mai - uu says:

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

  22. Windo says:

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

  23. BuddingCook says:

  24. Precious Pea says:

    Slurps…not a fan of cherry tomatoes but with your recipe…I will be now.

  25. christine says:

    How super simple and genius! Bacon can make everything better really no?

  26. msiagirl says:

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

  27. Dhana says:
