Our Favorite Oven Roasted Tomato Recipe

I was really glad to see that this week’s Dorie assignment was not just an easy one, but a very familiar one, as well.

These grape tomatoes were tossed in some olive oil and dressed with a whole lot of garlic, herbs, and some salt and pepper.

Dorie suggested that I use 1-2 garlic cloves…are you kidding? I’d be fired from this kitchen, Gordon Ramsay style, if I didn’t add in at least double that.

I then roasted the tomatoes in the oven on low temperature for 3 hours. Usually I roast them at 350 for about 45 minutes and they turn out the same. Just sayin’. 😉

  1. I finally got around to making them and they were perfect tucked into Bison Burgers I made last night. I’m afraid they aren’t lasting long as I’m eating the rest like candy.

  2. Oh my word! Slow roasted tomatoes are my fav! I have like a bazillion of them to harvest this week, so I feel like its the perfect time to indulge!
