Bacon Tomato Cups

Samster's Mommy shared a link for Bacon Tomato Cups a couple Sunday's back.  I am getting a little tired of our egg bake after 6 months of eating it every single day. I thought these looked delicious & decided to try them.  They are SUPER easy to make & yummy heated up a couple days later.  I made them ahead of time & put them in the fridge.  We take them for work & heat them in the microwave for about 30-45 seconds for 2. 

3/4 cup uncooked bacon, chopped into 1/2 inch pieces

1/2 cup light mayonnaise

1/2 cup Swiss Cheese, shredded

1 plum tomato, finely chopped

1 teaspoon dried basil
1 (7.5 oz) tube refrigerated buttermilk biscuits

Chop the bacon and cook in a skillet over medium heat until brown and crispy. Remove bacon to paper towels to drain. Cool completely. In a medium bowl, combine the bacon, mayonnaise, cheese, tomato, and basil. Cover and refrigerate until ready to bake.

Preheat the oven to 450.  Separate the biscuit dough into 10 pieces and press into a muffin pan. You can also make mini cups by cutting the biscuits in half & placing them in a mini muffin pan.  Place a tablespoonful of bacon mixture in the center of each cup.  Bake for 8-9 minutes or until golden brown.  Serve Warm.
