Roasting Tomatoes {And a Yummy Sandwich!}

I've seen a lot of recipes for roasted tomatoes and have always wanted to give it a try.  I stocked up on tomatoes last week thinking I was going to make a big batch of yummy bruschetta but that never happened.  I didn't want them to go to waste so I decided to roast them.

Here's what you do:

Quarter each tomato and remove seeds
Drizzle with olive oil
Sprinkle with kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
Top with a few minced garlic cloves

Preheat oven to 450° and roast for about 20-25 minutes.

*I lined my baking sheet with parchment paper for easy clean-up


After about 5 minutes in the oven, the tomatoes were smelling wonderful!


After the tomatoes came out of the oven I decided to make a roasted tomato and feta sandwich.  I toasted some french bread then piled on the tomatoes and topped with feta.  I stuck it under the broiler for a few minutes and then tried my first bite.  OH MY GOODNESS, these tomatoes are one of the tastiest things I've ever eaten!  My super simple sandwich tasted like something from a restaurant.


Don't wait as long as I did to try roasting tomatoes!

One of my favorite foods! Mine almost never make it into recipes as I love to just pop them in my mouth and eat them. Sooo yummy! I've never tried it with garlic though. That has got to make them even better. I can't wait to give that a try. Thanks so much for the great idea!

Wow, this looks really amazing. So simple and gorgeous. I roasted tomatoes over the weekend for the first time, too. (I'll be posting that recipe next week for Tasty Tuesdays.) I did something very different with mine though, and this gives me a lot of new ideas. Thanks for the inspiration for such a great meal!

Just Stopping by from TMTT. These pictures of tomatoes make me long for summer when I can pick some from my garden. I wanted to invite you to check out my Iron Chef Challenge This month's themed ingredient is canned tomatoes, so link up a recipe using those and you could win a prize.
