Roasted Tomatoes and Goat Cheese Crostini

Roasted Tomatoes and Goat Cheese Crostini

FacebooktwitterpinterestlinkedinmailSummer is all about weekend get-togethers. This is a great recipe to have on hand for your next dinner party. Change it up by grilling your tomatoes instead of roasting in the oven!

Remember, all of these ingredients can be found at your local farmers markets.

Total time: 2 1/2 hours
Servings: 8 to 10

  • 4 pounds plum tomatoes, preferably both gold and red
  • 1 head garlic
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 cups olive oil
  • 1 baguette
  • 1/2pound fresh goat cheese

1. Heat the oven to 300 degrees. Slice the tomatoes in half lengthwise and arrange them cut-side up in an 11 1/2-by-14-inch baking pan, preferably earthenware. They should fit tightly.

2. Separate the garlic into cloves and peel the cloves. Scatter them among the tomatoes. Season the tomatoes liberally with salt and pepper and pour over enough olive oil to come at least halfway up the sides of the pan. Bake, uncovered, until the tomatoes turn golden brown on top, at least 2 hours. Cool for at least 10 minutes.

3. Cut the baguette on a bias into half-inch slices. Toast the bread until lightly browned on both sides.

4. To serve, use a fork to remove each tomato slice from the pan (allowing excess oil to drip back into pan) and place it on a slice of toasted bread. Top each with a dab of fresh goat cheese, about 2 teaspoons.
