Happy Monday! How was your weekend? I spent time with friends, family, and made these baguette snacks twice. Great people & delicious food: weekend success! Technically these tomatoes are oven dried, but you can easily imagine they’d spent a few weeks sunbathing in Italy; they’re that sweet. These would make a great Valentine’s Day appetizer if you’re cooking at home with your love. Here’s what you’ll need:
- Parchment paper or foil
- A bunch of roma tomatoes
- Sea salt & pepper
- Olive oil
- One baguette
- Fresh basil leaves
1. Preheat your oven to 275 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Slice your tomatoes in half and place them on your baking sheet.
2. Sprinkle your tomatoes with olive oil & sea salt. Bake in the oven for 3.5+ hours until they look sufficiently dried. Baking time will depend on the size of your tomatoes. They should look crinkly!
3. Take the tomatoes out of the oven when they’re ready. Start slicing your crusty baguette into slices diagonally. Crusty, such a good word.
4. Spread your baguette slices with chèvre. Top with one basil leaf and one sun dried tomato. Arrange on a plate and sprinkle with a final touch of olive oil, sea salt, and pepper. Enjoy!
