Oven Roasted Tomatoes


This is one of my favorite summer side dishes.  Topped with a creamy balsamic glaze, you will love these oven roasted tomatoes too!

Make the Best Oven Roasted Tomatoes

The full recipe is available below, but I've provided an explanation here with more details:

  • First, we need to choose the right tomatoes.  Any small tomato variety will work, I use either grape or cherry tomatoes for this recipe.
  • Next, we will toss the tomatoes with the olive oil, cracked salt, and pepper.  We want to make sure we toss the tomatoes well because we want to coat them evenly.
  • Then, we will roast them in the oven.  We will toss them once or twice while they are cooking.
  • Almost done!  Once the tomatoes are soft and the skin is wrinkled, we will take them out of the oven to cool.
  • Lastly, we will top the tomatoes with the basil and balsamic glaze.

Serving Oven Roasted Tomatoes

I love to serve these tomatoes many ways, including:

  • over a simple baked chicken breast
  • as a side to a baked fish such as cod or salmon
  • as a topping to pasta such as penne or spaghetti
  • with scrambled eggs for brunch
  • on a flatbread with other toppings such as feta cheese and red onion
