Garlic Roasted Tomatoes

Roasted to a nice char, these tomatoes take on a very smoky and rich flavor. They’re perfect with our breakfast or brunch eggs, fabulous as a side to a lunch salad and the perfect side dish to a steak or grilled meat/seafood dish. We’re obsessed with these and so are our friends. These also make a fabulous roast garlic tomato sauce. Just chop them up to your favorite textures and jar them for use in sauces and tomato soup later. Roasted garlic tomato soup is another fabulous way we like to use these tomatoes.

Roasted Garlic Tomatoes

You can use as much garlic as you like. We like to roast the tomatoes a little longer for a darker, more rich and smoky flavor. You can also chop the tomatoes up and save it as a fantastic sauce! If you have a Roast function on your oven, go ahead and use that mode. The texture comes out a touch better using Roast. Roast the tomatoes to your preferred darkness.
