Cheesy Roasted Tomato Bread

Cheesy Roasted Tomato Bread


  • 1 pint cherry or grape tomatoes

  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided

  • 2 garlic cloves, smashed

  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

  • 3 bolillo or sweet Italian rolls, split in half (6 pieces total)

  • Shredded mozzarella cheese

  • Freshly grated parmesan cheese


1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. On a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil, toss the tomatoes with the balsamic vinegar, 2 tablespoons olive oil, and salt and pepper to taste. Roast, stirring frequently, 10 to 12 minutes or until tomatoes begin to burst.

2. Meanwhile, heat 1/4 cup olive oil, smashed garlic cloves, and Italian seasoning in a small skillet over low heat. Cook for 5 to 10 minutes, until the oil has fully absorbed the garlic flavor. Discard garlic cloves.

3. Brush each piece of bread with garlic-flavored olive oil. Broil until nearly crisp.

4. Top bread with roasted tomatoes and a sprinkle of cheeses. Return to oven and broil a couple of minutes more, just until cheese is melted. Serve.
