A quick little mid-day recipe for all my readers.
Since we are at the peak of tomato season – jersey tomato season for me!! – I wanted to share this not so quick, but oh so easy recipe for slow oven tomatoes.
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 275 degrees.
Step 2: Slice your tomatoes horizontally and place them sliced side up in a baking dish
Step 3: Brush each tomato with olive oil. I used basil oil (Mmmmmmmmm!!mmmmm)
Step 4: Add a sprinkling of sea salt
Step 5: Place into your preheated oven for three hours. Once hour 3 is up, turn off the oven and let them sit in there for another hour.
Out come these beauties:
You can put these slices on anything from a salad to a sandwich. On this week’s dinner menu are chicken sandwiches – how delicious would these be with a bit of pesto dousing the bread?! … They keep for a week for you can enjoy them endlessly!
