Roasted Grape Tomatoes, Onions, and Garlic on Toast with Fresh Basil

Roasted Grape Tomatoes, Onions, and Garlic on Toast with Fresh Basil

This could very well be my new favorite lunch. My father, brother in law, and nephew came for a quick but wonderful visit last weekend. My mom sent me a TON of tomatoes from her garden with my dad which means you will be seeing a lot of tomato recipes this week. I decided to grab the orange grape tomatoes she sent along with a handful of regular grape tomatoes and roast them with onion and garlic. I then spooned it over a toasted piece of French bread and topped it with fresh basil. It was seriously delicious! I will be having this for lunch again tomorrow. Thanks for all of the tomatoes Mom!

Set aside to cool then peel the skin and slice thinly. Place the sliced garlic back into the tomato mixture. Taste and season with sea salt, if needed.

Place a slice of French bread into the oven for a few minutes, or until toasted.

Spoon the tomato mixture on top of the toast then sprinkle with fresh basil and drizzle with balsamic, if desired. Serve immediately. Enjoy.
