    •1 loaf of soft sliced bread
    •8 to 10 Roma tomatoes
    •1/4 cup mayonnaise
    •3 ounces cream cheese
    •1 tablespoons minced fresh basil
    •8 slices of bacon

Using a 2-inch biscuit cutter, cut 3 rounds out of each slice of bread. Cut Roma tomatoes into 1/4-inch rounds.

Using an electric mixer, whip cream cheese. Add the mayonnaise and whip until smooth, adding the basil last.

Dice the bacon and cook until crisp--then drain on paper towel.

Spread cream cheese mixture on bread round, top with tomato round and a touch of cooked bacon.
