Do you have extra tomatoes lying around? Make a batch of these easy and delicious roasted tomatoes! They make a great stand-alone appetizer or pizza topping!
I was gifted some tomatoes unexpectedly today from a playgroup mom. Since I accidentally grew all cherry and grape tomatoes, I happily took them off her hands.
I have a few plans for these tomatoes – including making most of them into a sauce, making a pesto pizza topped with fresh tomatoes, and making grilled cheese with tomato (of course).
Easy Roasted Tomatoes Recipe
Those could all wait. I knew the first things I would do is roast some of them as an afternoon snack. Because I was starved after spending the morning at the park with my 2 littles and all of their playgroup friends.
These roasted tomatoes are so easy to make and really intensify the tomato flavor. They are perfect for any tomato lover. (Another favorite appetizer is Air Fryer Chicken Wings, check it out!)
How to Roast Tomatoes
You start with a good bunch of Roma or beefsteak tomatoes, sliced 1/2 inch thick. Slather them in olive oil and salt & pepper. Then, roast them until they get slightly chewy and very yummy. I used my toaster oven, but a regular oven works just as well. A toaster oven just heats the house up a little less.
How long do roasted tomatoes last?
These roasted tomatoes will last 3 to 5 days. They are best fresh from the oven if eating them on their own. Otherwise, you can refrigerate them and add them to recipes throughout the week.
