I have vivid memories of having grilled tomatoes on the side for breakfast in the 70’s when we would dine in hotels or some fancy restaurant. Even at a young age my tastebuds was intrigued by the taste of this warm and succulent fruit that has been grilled.

It’s been awhile since I have had these and I wanted to have something to go with my eggs other than a salad. So here is what I made.


Preheat your oven to 350F


Wash and pat dry your tomatoes careful not to pull it out of the vine. Arrange your tomatoes on a tray or sheet pan. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil. Season with kosher salt and ground black pepper. Place in the oven and roast for 20-25 minutes or until the skin has cracked and the tomatoes has softened. Cooking time depends on the size of your tomatoes.



You can serve it as a side for eggs or any main course or add to pasta or even eat it plain.
