Blue Cup Special Recipe

Blue Cup Special Recipe


  • 1/2 pound of bacon - thick cut preferred.
  • 1 bag of mixed salad greens
  • 6 cherry tomatoes
  • blue cheese


Preheat oven to 350F. Use a mini muffin pan and slice the bacon into thirds, then length-wise creating approximately 6 pieces from each slice. Then mold these to the inside of each of the muffin cups. Bake 25 to 30 minutes. Drain off fat and let cups cool on a paper towel. While cooling, cut the tomatoes into quarters and the blue cheese into small chunks about the same size. Then wrap a tomato quarter and a blue cheese chunk with an appropriate sized green leaf and stuff gently into the cooled bacon cups. Serve at room temperature, or chill to server later that day.
