Ingredients:

  • 1 10.5-oz. container NatureSweet® Glorys® tomatoes
  • 1-2 tbsp. olive oil
  • Kosher or sea salt to taste
  • A few pinches sugar
  • Fresh coarse ground pepper
  • 1/2 baguette, sliced
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. butter, melted
  • 6 oz. goat cheese
  • Fresh basil and olive oil for drizzling

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400° F.
  2. Spread out the tomatoes on a baking sheet. Toss with 1-2 tbsp. olive oil until the tomatoes are well coated. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and few pinches of sugar. Place in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until tomatoes are soft.
  3. In a medium-size bowl, mix together the remaining olive oil and butter. With a pastry brush, spread oil and butter mixture to both sides of baguette, then line them up on a baking sheet.
  4. Place them in the oven with the tomatoes and bake for 15-20 minutes until golden and crisp.
  5. When the tomatoes are done, transfer to an oven-safe tray or bowl and top with goat cheese. Place back in the oven for an additional 5 minutes to warm the goat cheese. Remove from the oven, drizzle with a little olive oil and sprinkle with fresh basil (optional).
  6. Serve with toasted baguette or crackers.
