I really love this time of year, when the seasons start shifting and the days become cooler. I recently harvested the remainder of my tomatoes and I’m planning to use them for one of my favorite snacks. I am using grape tomatoes, but any kind will do. This is a simple and delicious recipe that I hope you’ll enjoy.
Fresh Tomato Crostini
2 c grape tomatoes, halved
1 t fresh thyme, chopped fine
1 T balsamic vinegar
1 T olive oil
sea salt and pepper
1 baguette, sliced into 1" wide slices
10 slices of cheese, your choice (I use goat cheddar; you could also use provolone, manchego or asiago)
Preheat oven to 350°. In a small bowl, toss tomatoes with thyme, vinegar and olive oil. Salt and pepper to taste. On a baking sheet, arrange bread slices and toast in the oven 3-5 min. Remove from oven and flip bread slices over. Top evenly with the cheese then return to oven for 3-5 min, until cheese is melted. Remove from oven and arrange bread slices on a plate. Serve with tomato topping and enjoy!
