Servings: 4 servings
- 2 pints cherry tomatoes halved
- 4 cloves garlic minced
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1 ball fresh mozzarella torn into large pieces
- Salt + pepper to taste
- Thick bread brushed with oil and toasted
- Fresh chopped basil for garnish
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Toss tomatoes and garlic together with olive oil then transfer to a baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast until cherry tomatoes are bursting and lightly browned, about 40–45 minutes. Let cool.
To assemble, add torn pieces of mozzarella on top of toast. Spoon warm tomatoes on top and gently press down so the juices spill over cheese/bread.
Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with more salt, if desired. Serve immediately with chopped basil. Enjoy!
TIP: Tomatoes can be roasted one day ahead. Just make sure to transfer the tomatoes after roasting to a airtight container and refrigerate. The following day, reheat before serving.
