Cheese & Bacon Stuffed Tomatoes

2 medium tomatoes
6 slices of bacon
1/4 cup green pepper, chopped
1/4 cup onion, chopped
3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 tablespoon lettuce, chopped
1 tablespoon crushed cheese crackers
2 tablespoons butter

Cut a thin slice from the top of each tomato.
Scoop out the pulp and set it aside.
Drain the tomatoes upside down on a rack placed over a paper towel.
In a skillet, cook bacon until well done (or microwave until done).
If done in skillet, drain off fat and then add the pepper and onion
and sauté until soft.
Remove the pan from heat and blend in the cheese, lettuce and
reserved tomato pulp.
Fill each tomato shell with half the mixture.
Sprinkle with cracker crumbs and dot each with 1 teaspoon of butter.
Place in a baking dish sprayed with non-fat cooking spray (or buttered dish).
Bake in preheated 400* oven for 25 to 30 minutes.
