I have had bags full of tomatoes in my refrigerator. I don’t mean a couple of puny sandwich bags full. I mean at least 4 gallon-sized ziplock bags full.
And, this is after making 14 jars of salsa, canning 8 jars of whole tomatoes, eating bruschetta until we were sick of it and throwing as many as I can on every salad, every day.
Thus, the need to find new uses for aging tomatoes. I decided to try my hand at Oven Roasting Cherry Tomatoes. A slight gorge-fest happened when these puppies were pulled from the oven. Even Biceps couldn’t quit.
Here’s all that you’ll need to make Oven Roasted Cherry Tomatoes:
Prep time: 5 minutes, Cooking Time: 1-1 1/2 hrs, Skill Level: Easy
9 x 13 pan
Uses: Garnish crackers with tomatoes and “Laughing Cow-light” spreadable cheese. Top a pizza with them, eat on a salad, a sandwich or by themselves.
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
Spray the 9 x 13 pan with cooking spray and pile in the cherry tomatoes. Sprinkle basil and garlic on top.
After about 30-45 minutes, when the tomatoes are becoming soft, carefully turn the tomatoes over once.
Place back in the oven for another 30-45 minutes, or until most tomatoes have turned brown on at least one side.
These are amazingly delicious and oh, so simple. It’s getting hotter, it’s a burning love, I just can’t get enough, I just can’t get enough…(thank you, Depeche Mode).
Hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
