Baked Tomatoes!

imageEver need a quick simple side dish?  Ever have a pint of cherry tomatoes and want to do something different with them?  I love tomatoes and often have them on hand.  I throw them in my salads and soups all the time.  Years ago, when traveling through Spain with my friends, when we ordered our food we would get a baked tomato on the side.  Sort of like how when you order a sandwich here in the US you get a pickle.  Well, I fell in love with them.  I would even eat my friends tomatoes if they didn’t want them!  More recently, while going to Ruth Chris Steakhouse I saw that they had Broiled Tomatoes on their menu!  Well, you know I had to try them and of course, they were amazing.  This recipe is a recreation of both of those tomatoes!  Enjoy!

Here’s a quick and tasty recipe….

  • Put cherry tomatoes on a baking sheet
  • Drizzle with olive oil and roll them around in the oil so that they get oiled all over
  • Sprinkle with salt and pepper
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes at 350
  • When done sprinkle with fresh chopped basil
