Nothing roasts tomatoes quite so well as a cast-iron skillet in my opinion. Toss in some of my “oven-roasted garlic” from my last post, tomatoes and herbs and you are ready to roast.
Cast-Iron Garlic and Herb Roasted Tomatoes
For this non-recipe-recipe you will need:
A very good crusty baguette; two pints of cherry tomatoes; a handful of fresh herbs such as thyme, rosemary, oregano and sage; olive oil roasted garlic, or fresh garlic smashed and olive oil; sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, room temperature softened Brie
,Turn oven to 425 degrees. In a 10 or 12 inch cast iron skillet add the tomatoes, some of the herbs, olive oil with roasted garlic or fresh smashed garlic with olive oil, sea salt and black pepper. Place skillet in the oven and roast for about 20 minutes or until the tomatoes begin to burst and start to char. Remove skillet from oven.
To baguette slices add softened Brie and top with tomato mixture (be sure to scrape up some of the pan drippings as well. Add more fresh herbs if you like, salt and pepper. Enjoy.
You can make this any time of the year using store-bought cherry or grape tomatoes. Best with summer home-grown but needs must!
