BLT Bites

Happy Hump Day, my sweets!

I hope you are all having fabulous weeks!

I had another post planned for today, but after making these yummy BLT Bites last night I couldn't resist sharing them!

As I've mentioned before, a big group of girls gathers at Erin's house every week to watch The Bachelorette.  We compete on teams, earning points for words like "love", "amazing"and "connection" as well as for actions such as a make out sesh, helicopter ride, or voiceover.  Teams also take turns bringing snacks.  Last night was my team's turn for snacks.  When I got home from nannying I had a bad migraine that put me on the couch for about an hour and a half.  After that I had little time to prepare my snack, so I had to come up with something fast based on ingredients I had on hand.  I quickly checked Pinterest for inspiration and found these BLT Gourgeres.  They looked delicious, but they didn't fit my timetable. They DID, however, provide ample inspiration!

I present you with BLT Bites!


Honestly, I feel silly even referring to this as a recipe, because it's so simple and easy!  But here goes!

Ingredients:
  • B:  Bacon (chewy is better, crunchy tends to crumble when pulled apart)
  • L:  Lettuce (in my case, arugula)
  • T:  Tomato, (cherry or grape tomatoes are best for this bite sized treat, sliced in half)
  • Basil Aioli
  • Ritz Crackers



Directions:
Place a small piece of bacon onto the cracker, top with basil aioli, arugula, and tomato half! Then...enjoy!
