Gorgeous, sweet-however-tangy roasted cherry tomatoes make a deliciously fresh side dish, and are just as wonderful for breakfast as they are for dinner.

These tomatoes are so good! Truly, in my opinion, tomatoes are great no matter whether raw or cooked.

I adore them raw in a tomato salad or in this wonderful Caprese salad, but I also love them cooked. Cooking actually concentrates and brings out their special flavor.

How to make roasted cherry tomatoes

It’s this kind of an effortless recipe. Scroll down to the recipe card for the in depth guidelines. Right here are the fundamental actions:

  1. You coat the tomatoes in olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and spices.
  2. Then roast them in a 425°F oven for twenty minutes. That’s it!

Sometimes I sprinkle the tomatoes with a small bit of Parmesan cheese prior to baking them, or with crumbled feta soon after I pull them out of the oven. Both variations are nice but purely optional.

They make a fantastic side dish. They go nicely with meat, poultry, and fish.

I frequently serve them with baked chicken breast, roasting each the chicken and the tomatoes in the very same oven. They also make a great side dish to baked cod.

They are also surprisingly great when served for brunch. I like to serve them with eggs and oven bacon for a tasty, total meal.
