    Roasted Olive Oil Tomatoes

    Sun-kissed tomatoes are roasted to ultra-sweet perfection in this appetizer—a tip-off that more great things are to come. Be sure to serve with chunks of good quality crusty bread. Or toast pitas on the grill and break into chunks. If desired, you can swap out the bocconcini with chunks of mozzarella or burrata. The dish can be made ahead, without adding the cheese, and simply warmed up in the oven.
