Course Type: Appetizer

Preparation Time: 20 minutes

The perfect combination of creamy brie, delicious herbs and zesty tomatoes

Ingredients:

  • 1 10.5-oz. container NatureSweet® Glorys® tomatoes
  • 1 baguette, cut in half (or in half-inch thick round slices)
  • 8 oz. triple cream Brie cheese at room temperature
For vinaigrette
  • 3 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. finely chopped fresh oregano
  • 2 tsp. rice or white wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp. honey
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper

Instructions:

  1. Prepare grill for direct cooking over medium heat (350°-450° F).
  2. In large bowl, whisk the vinaigrette ingredients together and set aside.
  3. Grill the Glorys® tomatoes over medium direct heat, with the lid closed as much as possible, until the skins begin to blister (about 2-4 minutes), turning once or twice.
  4. Carefully cut each tomato in half with a serrated knife. Add the cut tomatoes to the vinaigrette and mix gently. Set aside at room temperature.
  5. Grill the baguette slices over direct medium heat, with the lid open, until lightly toasted on each side (1-2 minutes), turning once or twice.
  6. Brush the baguette slices on one side with some vinaigrette and smear some Brie on top. Using a fork, lift the cut tomato halves one at a time from the vinaigrette and set one or two on top of each crostini.
  7. Serve immediately.
