Snackin’ with Sarah Sellers: Goat Cheese-Stuffed Cherry Tomatoes

Goat Cheese-Stuffed Cherry Tomatoes

The girls are taking over American Idol this week so I decided to make feminine finger food for Lyndsey Parker and her Reality Rocks blog.

I searched everywhere for cherry tomatoes and had no luck so I used these beautiful orange plum tomatoes instead and they worked just as well. The goat cheese adds an extra punch and the drizzle of balsamic vinegar balances out the flavors perfectly.

Give it a try!! These would be perfect for a wedding or baby shower.

Happy Eating!

Ingredients

  • 14 cherry tomatoes (plum works as well)
  • 4 oz goat cheese
  • 2 tbsp basil, chiffonade
  • pinch of kosher salt
  • pinch of cracked black pepper
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar

Cut a small sliver off the bottom of the tomatoes so they stand on their own, then slice the tops and remove the seeds. Turn upside down on a paper towel and drain for 10-15 minutes.
